net: route dump netlink NLM_F_MULTI flag missing
An excerpt from netlink(7) man page, In multipart messages (multiple nlmsghdr headers with associated payload in one byte stream) the first and all following headers have the NLM_F_MULTI flag set, except for the last header which has the type NLMSG_DONE. but, after (ee28906) there is a missing NLM_F_MULTI flag in the middle of a FIB dump. The result is user space applications following above man page excerpt may get confused and may stop parsing msg believing something went wrong. In the golang netlink lib [0] the library logic stops parsing believing the message is not a multipart message. Found this running Cilium[1] against net-next while adding a feature to auto-detect routes. I noticed with multiple route tables we no longer could detect the default routes on net tree kernels because the library logic was not returning them. Fix this by handling the fib_dump_info_fnhe() case the same way the fib_dump_info() handles it by passing the flags argument through the call chain and adding a flags argument to rt_fill_info(). Tested with Cilium stack and auto-detection of routes works again. Also annotated libs to dump netlink msgs and inspected NLM_F_MULTI and NLMSG_DONE flags look correct after this. Note: In inet_rtm_getroute() pass rt_fill_info() '0' for flags the same as is done for fib_dump_info() so this looks correct to me.
