Subject: [PATCH net-next] IPv6: enable TCP to use an anycast address

- Use ipv6_anycast_destination() in tcp_v6_send_reset() and
  tcp_v6_conn_request().

Signed-off-by: Francois-Xavier Le Bail <fx.lebail@...oo.com>
---
Tested with link-local and global anycast addresses.
Tested with SOCK_STREAM socket, bind and TCP traffic OK.
