From: Marcelo Ricardo Leitner <mleitner@redhat.com>

This patch is based on 3.2.y branch, the one used by reporter. Please let me
know if it should be different. Thanks.

The patch which introduced the regression was applied on stables:
3.0.64 3.4.31 3.7.8 3.2.39

The patch which introduced the regression was for stable trees only.

---8<---

Commit 0d6a77079c475033cb622c07c5a880b392ef664e "ipv6: do not create
neighbor entries for local delivery" introduced a regression on
which routes to local delivery would not work anymore. Like this:

    $ ip -6 route add local 2001::/64 dev lo
    $ ping6 -c1 2001::9
    PING 2001::9(2001::9) 56 data bytes
    ping: sendmsg: Invalid argument

As this is a local delivery, that commit would not allow the creation of a
neighbor entry and thus the packet cannot be sent.

But as TPROXY scenario actually needs to avoid the neighbor entry creation only
for input flow, this patch now limits previous patch to input flow, keeping
output as before that patch.
