Multiple IPv6 routes selection based on source IPv6 address?

Posted by vacu 
Hello Linux networking experts,

I am using 2.6.38 and counter a problem on IPv6 routing: if i have multiple routes to a certain dst IP address and I have source IPv6 address of output interface which I want the packet sent out, how can I get right route based on the source IP address.

Dive into fib6_lookup and find source address is not used for looking up even user supplied the source address.

So is there any way or known patch to let IPv6 route checking source address?

Thanks
Vacu
