net/ipv6: update flowi6_oif in ip6_dst_lookup_flow if not set

Newly created flows don't have flowi6_oif set (at least if the
associated socket is not interface-bound). This leads to a mismatch in
__xfrm6_selector_match() for policies which specify an interface in the
selector (sel->ifindex != 0).

Backtracing shows this happens in code-paths originating from e.g.
ip6_datagram_connect(), rawv6_sendmsg() or tcp_v6_connect(). (UDP was
not tested for.)

In summary, this patch fixes policy matching on outgoing interface for
locally generated packets.
