Opened bug 211602 so this won't get lost.

Also happens when the gateway route was deleted so not specific
to link-local addresses.
# route add -inet6 2001:db8:0::/64 fe80::7%lo0
# route add -inet6 2001:db8:1::/64 2001:db8:0::1
# route delete -inet6 2001:db8:0::/64
# route change -inet6 2001:db8:1::/64 2001:db8:0::1

I restored RTF_RNH_LOCKED locally as a workaround so rtalloc1_fib
won't try to lock when rtrequest1_fib already took a lock before
calling rtrequest1_fib_change.

On a related note, also mentioned by Bjoern, should link-local
gateway addresses without %IF zone index be accepted?

This can be confusing when you forget the %IF and think you added
the route correctly but it is acting as a black hole.
I forgot the %IF when adding the default route and stumbled on this panic.

On OpenBSD when the gateway is missing the zone index the route is rejected.
# route add -inet6 default fe80::7
route: writing to routing socket: Network is unreachable
add net default: gateway fe80::7: Network is unreachable
