ipvs: fix bind to link-local mcast IPv6 address in backup

When using HEAD from
the command:
ipvsadm --start-daemon backup --mcast-interface eth0.60 \
    --mcast-group ff02::1:81
fails with the error message:
Argument list too long

whereas both:
ipvsadm --start-daemon master --mcast-interface eth0.60 \
    --mcast-group ff02::1:81
ipvsadm --start-daemon backup --mcast-interface eth0.60 \
are successful.

The error message "Argument list too long" isn't helpful. The error occurs
because an IPv6 address is given in backup mode.

The error is in make_receive_sock() in net/netfilter/ipvs/ip_vs_sync.c,
since it fails to set the interface on the address or the socket before
calling inet6_bind() (via sock->ops->bind), where the test
'if (!sk->sk_bound_dev_if)' failed.

Setting sock->sk->sk_bound_dev_if on the socket before calling
inet6_bind() resolves the issue.
