Subject[PATCH 3.16 312/370] route: do not cache fib route info on local routes with oif
3.16.42-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Chris Friesen <chris.friesen@windriver.com>

[ Upstream commit d6d5e999e5df67f8ec20b6be45e2229455ee3699 ]

For local routes that require a particular output interface we do not want
to cache the result. Caching the result causes incorrect behaviour when
there are multiple source addresses on the interface. The end result
being that if the intended recipient is waiting on that interface for the
packet he won't receive it because it will be delivered on the loopback
interface and the IP_PKTINFO ipi_ifindex will be set to the loopback
interface as well.

This can be tested by running a program such as "dhcp_release" which
attempts to inject a packet on a particular interface so that it is
received by another program on the same board. The receiving process
should see an IP_PKTINFO ipi_ifndex value of the source interface
(e.g., eth1) instead of the loopback interface (e.g., lo). The packet
will still appear on the loopback interface in tcpdump but the important
aspect is that the CMSG info is correct.

Sample dhcp_release command line:

dhcp_release eth1 192.168.204.222 02:11:33:22:44:66
