ipv6: drop non loopback packets claiming to originate from ::1
We lack a saddr check for ::1. This causes security issues e.g. with acls permitting connections from ::1 because of assumption that these originate from local machine. Assuming a source address of ::1 is local seems reasonable. RFC4291 doesn't allow such a source address either, so drop such packets.
