Commit 508b09046c0f ("netfilter: ipv6: Preserve link scope traffic
original oif") made ip6_route_me_harder() keep the original oif for
link-local and multicast packets. However, it also affected packets
for the loopback address because it used rt6_need_strict().

REDIRECT rules in the OUTPUT chain rewrite the destination to loopback
address; thus its oif should not be preserved. This commit fixes the bug
that redirected local packets are being dropped. Actually the packet was
not exactly dropped; Instead it was sent out to the original oif rather
than lo. When a packet with daddr ::1 is sent to the router, it is
effectively dropped.
