I don't think that's correct at all.  The code path shows here is when there are no received
options and no sticky options set.  In such case, we shouldn't be returning multicast or
bound interfaces.  We should be returning 0.

Additionally the address returned is completely bogus as well.  We are returning the
address our peer instead of the one of our own addresses.
