Subject: [PATCH] fib_semantics: prevent long hash chains in access server config

This is a patch from a while ago that I'm resending.  Basically, in access 
server configurations, a lot of routes have the same local ip address but on 
different devices.  This fixes the long chains that result from not including 
the device index in the hash.
