Thanks, David.

Unfortunately, reversing that patch does not fix the problem. The pings 
from the KVM client to the router still time out.

I have bisected this (see 
http://marc.info/?l=linux-netdev&m=134797809611847&w=2) and that rendered:

$ git bisect bad
d2d68ba9fe8b38eb03124b3176a013bb8aa2b5e5 is the first bad commit

     ipv4: Cache input routes in fib_info nexthops.

     Caching input routes is slightly simpler than output routes, since we
     don't need to be concerned with nexthop exceptions.  (locally
     destined, and routed packets, never trigger PMTU events or redirects
     that will be processed by us).

     However, we have to elide caching for the DIRECTSRC and non-zero itag
     cases.

Unfortunately, the related patches don't reverse cleanly, but a kernel 
built from a git checkout of the parent commit ( 
f2bb4bedf35d5167a073dcdddf16543f351ef3ae) works fine.
