iproute: Set flags and attributes on dump to get IPv6 cached routes to be flushed
With a current (5.1) kernel version, IPv6 exception routes can't be listed
(ip -6 route list cache) or flushed (ip -6 route flush cache). Kernel
support for this is being added back. Relevant net-next commits:
564c91f7e563 fib_frontend, ip6_fib: Select routes or exceptions dump from RTM_F_CLONED
ef11209d4219 Revert "net/ipv6: Bail early if user only wants cloned entries"
3401bfb1638e ipv6/route: Don't match on fc_nh_id if not set in ip6_route_del()
bf9a8a061ddc ipv6/route: Change return code of rt6_dump_route() for partial node dumps
1e47b4837f3b ipv6: Dump route exceptions if requested
40cb35d5dc04 ip6_fib: Don't discard nodes with valid routing information in fib6_locate_1()
However, to allow the kernel to filter routes based on the RTM_F_CLONED
flag, we need to make sure this flag is always passed when we want cached
routes to be dumped, and we can also pass table and output interface
attributes to have the kernel filtering on them, if requested by the user.
Use the existing iproute_dump_filter() as a filter for the dump request in
iproute_flush(). This way, 'ip -6 route flush cache' works again.
v2: Instead of creating a separate 'filter' function dealing with
RTM_F_CACHED only, use the existing iproute_dump_filter() and get
table and oif kernel filtering for free. Suggested by David Ahern.
