The scenario is the following: the user uses a raw socket to send an ipv6
packet, destinated to a not-connected network, and specify a connected nh.
Here is the corresponding python script to reproduce this scenario:

 import socket
 send_s = socket.socket(socket.AF_INET6, socket.SOCK_RAW, IPPROTO_RAW)
 # scapy
 # p = IPv6(src='fd00:100::1', dst='fd00:200::fa')/ICMPv6EchoRequest()
 # str(p)
 req = b'`\x00\x00\x00\x00\x08:@\xfd\x00\x01\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x01\xfd\x00\x02\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\xfa\x80\x00\x81\xc0\x00\x00\x00\x00'
 send_s.sendto(req, ('fd00:175::2', 0, 0, 0))

fd00:175::/64 is a connected route and fd00:200::fa is not a connected

With this scenario, the kernel starts by sending a NS to resolve
fd00:175::2. When it receives the NA, it flushes its queue and try to send
the initial packet. But instead of sending it, it sends another NS to
resolve fd00:200::fa, which obvioulsy fails, thus the packet is dropped. If
the user sends again the packet, it now uses the right nh (fd00:175::2).

The problem is that ip6_dst_lookup_neigh() uses the rt6i_gateway, which is
:: because the associated route is a connected route, thus it uses the dst
addr of the packet. Let's use rt6_nexthop() to choose the right nh.
