When I tested this yesterday, the peer was actually not on the same
subnet and I saw this problem.  I think the problem was also present
for a peer on the same subnet.
Anyway, I applied this patch and the DANGER one after this and the
problem has disappeared, fib_lookup() now returns RTN_LOCAL and ssh
responds immediately.
I tested with 2 peers, one on the same subnet and one on a different
one. So far, it looks good.
