New Revision: 220825

  MFC r220463:
   Remove a check in udp6_send() that prevented v4-mapped v6 addresses from
   working.  We store v4 and v6 addresses as a union but for v4-mapped
   addresses only store the 32bits w/o the ::ffff: word.  That failed the
   check as for example would be ::7f00:1 rather than ::ffff:7f00:1
   and the IN6_IS_ADDR_V4MAPPED() never worked here.  Given we can hardly get
   here with an unbound local address or invalid inp_vflags remove the check.
