ssh config for link-local IPv6

This is just a short note to remind me, how to configure a link-local IPv6 address in the ssh-config

#~/.ssh/config

HOST raspberry
USER pi
HOSTNAME fe80::0001%%eth0
AddressFamily inet6

Remember to put two precent signs, otherwise you might get errors like

percent_expand: unknown key %e
percent_expand: unknown key %w
percent_expand: unknown key %t

IPv6 for the win!
