Subject: [PATCH/RFC 05/10] Remove local address check on IP output

ip_route_output() contains a check to make sure that no flows with
non-local source IP addresses are routed. Unfortunately this check
makes it completely impossible to use non-local bound sockets as no
outbound packets will make through the stack.

This patch moves the interface lookup to the multicast-specific code
path as that is the only real user of the interface data looked up.
