[WireGuard] [PATCH] ip6_output: ensure flow saddr actually belongs to device

This puts the IPv6 routing functions in parity with the IPv4 routing
functions. Namely, we now check in v6 that if a flowi6 requests an
saddr, the returned dst actually corresponds to a net device that has
that saddr. This mirrors the v4 logic with __ip_dev_find in
__ip_route_output_key_hash. In the event that the returned dst is not
for a dst with a dev that has the saddr, we return -EINVAL, just like
v4; this makes it easy to use the same error handlers for both cases.
