Fix IPv6 Router Solicitation replies

 * The code was trying to find pkt.lladdr but this doesn't exist in an RS packet.
Instead pkt.src exists which has a value like: fe80::a800:ff:fab1:abcd So we
need to convert this address (which is a link local address) to a mac address
and use that mac.

Introduce ipv62mac function which does the ipv6 address to mac conversion.
