But I think NDA_DST/RTN_UNICAST have different means in this context,
even though the value of NDA_DST == RTN_UNICAST.

For arp proxy/NDP proxy context, ndm_type means the peer L3 address,
so RTN_UNICAST is the right value. For vxlan have similar semantic for
remote ip.

BTW: In the source code, implicit think NDA_DST == RTN_UNICAST maybe
not a good idea when we don't have a comment or the other explain.
