[PATCH] Allow address scopes for non-link-local addresses

Here is a small patch which allows non-zero address scopes on
non-link-local addresses. This is required to create connections inside
a VRF domain, as the Linux kernel documentation states.

In combination with multiple RIBs and FIBs, this makes Bird completely
VRF-capable. Therefore, this patch is neccessary to integrate Bird in
non-trivial routing setups without the use of multiple network namespaces.

It would be nice when you accept this patch.

Kind regards,

Fritz Grimpen
