I looked into the iproute2 code quickly and I think it should; it uses
getaddrinfo(3) and it will fill if you say "fe80::1%eth0" or something
like that.... OR, fix the bug.

Because we distinguish link-local scope addresses on different interfaces.
On the other hand, we do not distinguish global scope addresses on
different interfaces.

I think we should find a net_device with a specific "valid" (non-tentative)
address here, and your initial implementation is not enough because it does
not reject tentative addresses.  I'd recommend using generic ipv6_chk_addr()
inside.
