From: Amit Cohen <amcohen@nvidia.com>

After installing a route to the kernel, user space receives an
acknowledgment, which means the route was installed in the kernel, but not
necessarily in hardware.

The asynchronous nature of route installation in hardware can lead to a
routing daemon advertising a route before it was actually installed in
hardware. This can result in packet loss or mis-routed packets until the
route is installed in hardware.

To avoid such cases, previous patch set added the ability to emit
RTM_NEWROUTE notifications whenever RTM_F_OFFLOAD/RTM_F_TRAP flags
are changed, this behavior is controlled by sysctl.

With the above mentioned behavior, it is possible to know from user-space
if the route was offloaded, but if the offload fails there is no indication
to user-space. Following a failure, a routing daemon will wait indefinitely
for a notification that will never come.

This patch adds an "offload_failed" indication to IPv6 routes, so that
users will have better visibility into the offload process.

'struct fib6_info' is extended with new field that indicates if route
offload failed. Note that the new field is added using unused bit and
therefore there is no need to increase struct size.
