 ----
1. Configure an PPPoE interface (e.g., ppp0) with an IPv6 address and
   a prefixlen of 64; e.g., 2001:0DB8::1/64.
2. Configure a Netfilter ip6table rule to drop IN to OUT forwarding of traffic
   across the PPP interface: ip6tables -A FORWARD -i ppp+ -o ppp+ -j DROP
3. Create a Netfilter NFLOG rule to log all outbound traffic.
4. From an Internet IPv6 Address initiate TCP traffic to an IPv6 address
   within the /64 IPv6 address space from step 1, but an IPv6 address that
   is NOT configured on that interface; e.g., ` nc 2001:0DB8::2 80`
5. Observe the NFLOG showing the Netfilter ip6table filter FORWARD rule
   is matched and therefore the traffic should be dropped.
6. Observe the traffic from step 4, that should have been dropped,
   resulted in an outbound ICMPv6 Redirect with a source IPv6 address of
   the PPP interface’s Local Link to the Internet IPv6 Address.
 ----

Problem is that we emit the redirect before passing the packet to the
netfilter FORWARD hook.   The same "problem" exists in ipv4.

There are various counter-arguments to changing this, e.g.  we would
still emit such redirect when packet is dropped later in the stack
(e.g. in POSTROUTING or qdisc).

We will also still emit e.g. ICMPV6 PKTTOOBIG error, as that occurs
before FORWARD as well, and moving that seems wrong (packet
has to be dropped).

The only argument that I can think of in favor of this change
is the lack of a proper alternative to filtering such traffic.

PREROUTING would work, but at that point we lack the
"packet will be forwarded from ppp0 to ppp0" information that
we only have available in FORWARD.

Compile tested only.
