net: ipv6: Fixup device for anycast routes during copy

Florian reported a breakage with anycast routes due to commit
4832c30d ("net: ipv6: put host and anycast routes on device with
address"). Prior to this commit anycast routes were added against the
loopback device causing repetitive route entries with no insight into
why they existed. e.g.:
  $ ip -6 ro ls  table local type anycast
  anycast 2001:db8:1:: dev lo proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
  anycast 2001:db8:2:: dev lo proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
  anycast fe80:: dev lo proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
  anycast fe80:: dev lo proto kernel metric 0 pref medium

The point of commit 4832c30d is to add the routes using the device
with the address which is causing the route to be added. e.g.,:
  $ ip -6 ro ls  table local type anycast
  anycast 2001:db8:1:: dev eth1 proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
  anycast 2001:db8:2:: dev eth2 proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
  anycast fe80:: dev eth2 proto kernel metric 0 pref medium
  anycast fe80:: dev eth1 proto kernel metric 0 pref medium

For traffic to work as it did before, the dst device needs to be switched
to the loopback when the copy is created similar to local routes.

Fixes: 4832c30d ("net: ipv6: put host and anycast routes on device with address")
