Subject: [PATCH] ipv4: Restore accept_local behaviour in fib_validate_source()

Commit 7a9bc9b introduced a short-circuit to avoid calling
fib_validate_source when not needed. That change took rp_filter
into account, but not accept_local. This resulted in a change
of behaviour: with rp_filter and accept_local off, incoming
packets with a local address in the source field should be

Here is how to reproduce the change pre/post 7a9bc9b commit:
-configure the same IPv4 address on hosts A and B.
-try to send an arp request from B to A.
-The arp request will be dropped before commit 7a9bc9b,
but accepted and answered after that commit.

This adds a check for ACCEPT_LOCAL, to maintain full
fib validation in case it is 0.
