[IPV4] ROUTE: ip_rt_dump() is unecessary slow

[ Upstream commit: d8c9283089287341c85a0a69de32c2287a990e71 ]

I noticed "ip route list cache x.y.z.t" can be *very* slow.

While strace-ing -T it I also noticed that first part of route cache
is fetched quite fast :

recvmsg(3, {msg_name(12)={sa_family=AF_NETLINK, pid=0, groups=00000000}, msg_iov(1)=[{"p\0\0\0\30\0\2\0\254i\202
GXm\0\0\2 \0\376\0\0\2\0\2\0"..., 16384}], msg_controllen=0, msg_flags=0}, 0) = 3772 <0.000047>
recvmsg(3, {msg_name(12)={sa_family=AF_NETLINK, pid=0, groups=00000000}, msg_iov(1)=[{"\234\0\0\0\30\0\2\0\254i\
202GXm\0\0\2 \0\376\0\0\1\0\2"..., 16384}], msg_controllen=0, msg_flags=0}, 0) = 3736 <0.000042>

202GXm\0\0\2 \0\376\0\0\1\0\2"..., 16384}], msg_controllen=0, msg_flags=0}, 0) = 3740 <0.000055>

recvmsg(3, {msg_name(12)={sa_family=AF_NETLINK, pid=0, groups=00000000}, msg_iov(1)=[{"p\0\0\0\30\0\2\0\254i\202

while the part at the end of the table is more expensive:

recvmsg(3, {msg_name(12)={sa_family=AF_NETLINK, pid=0, groups=00000000}, msg_iov(1)=[{"\204\0\0\0\30\0\2\0\254i\202GXm\0\0\2 \0\376\0\0\1\0\2"..., 16384}], msg_controllen=0, msg_flags=0}, 0) = 3656 <0.003857>

The following patch corrects this performance/latency problem,
removing quadratic behavior.
