[ECOS] global addressing in ecos

thanks for the reply, we've tried using the tcpdump to analyze the packets 
being sent out, and it seems as if the target cannot "read" the global 
prefix being sent to it. a lot of the tests fail with the "NUT address not 
configured" error.

only a small percentage of the tests pass, and these mostly involve 
link-local addressing only. a lot of the tests would fail if a multicast 
and/or global address is involved.
