Presumably that would be for traffic originating from another host OpenWRT is forwarding for (blocking it from spoofing ::1 on the wire?) not for traffic originating on the OpenWRT box itself (where ::1 should work). I'm worried that if we just "fix" this issue on the musl side, OpenWRT is just wrongly going to conclude there's no IPv6 coonnectivity rather than that they have a configuration error breaking it..
