On the surface, that makes it sound like lldpad has the same bug as
libnl, of blindly assuming that it knows which address will be bound,
rather than realizing that netlink sockets might be used elsewhere and
thus the bound address is not guaranteed.  Is it something that can be
fixed quickly in lldpad?
