I think rp_filter turned on should be enough for the case source IP is
localhost. Debian turns it on by default (although this was already reported
as not RFC compliant) and it causes computer to drop all packets that come
from different interface than it belongs according to source address.
If 127.0.0.1 is the destination address, I am not sure if host not set up as
router will accept such packets (iirc, on solaris routing meant forwarding
packets between interfaces, so they wouldn't even reach looopback).
