        Hello,

        I now see, the kernel sends "who-has local_IP" when you
use 'ping -I device local_IP'. If this is considered bad we can extend
the checks when fib_lookup fails:

- check for UP state (is it needed? return ENETDOWN?)
- check if target IP is local and select "lo" instead of oif
