  You're right. Although I don't really like duplicating the ip_dev_find()
call, it's still better than the previous patch.

Loosen source address check on IPv4 output

ip_route_output() contains a check to make sure that no flows with
non-local source IP addresses are routed. This obviously makes using
such addresses impossible.

This patch introduces a flowi flag which makes omitting this check
possible.
