This makes the treatment of addresses from other sources consistent with the implementation of get_interface_address6_list.

This might need to be cherry-picked to:

But only once their implementations include tor_addr_is_public_for_reject.

Please see my branch exitpolicy-multicast on
It fixes this issue for master.

It doesn't need to be backported to 0.2.6 or 0.2.7, as neither implementation uses tor_addr_is_public_for_reject. (Also, triggering this issue would require an operator to explicitly configure a multicast address in their torrc, at which point they'd have bigger issues.)
