SIOCGLIFADDR doesn't set sin6_scope_id for link-local IPv6 addresses
When getting an address on an IPv6 interface with SIOCGLIFADDR, only the sin6_family and sin6_addr fields are set. If the address is a link-local address, then the zone identifier (the interface ID) should be placed in the sin6_scope_id field.
