Hi, Hideaki san,

Sorry for not understanding your comment earlier.

The bad thing is tipc in iproute2 doesn't seem able to set scope_id.
I saw many places in kernel doing this check:

                         if (__ipv6_addr_needs_scope_id(atype) &&
                             !ip6->sin6_scope_id) { return -EINVAL; }

Can I ask why scope id is needed for link-local addresses?
and is that for link-local addresses only?

Yeah, but if scope id means ifindex for  link-local addresses, ipv6_dev_find()
would be more like a function to validate the address with right scope id.

Thanks for your reviewing.
