Yeah, this patch seems to fix the bug for me.

[PATCH] ipv4: properly cache forward routes

commit d2d68ba9fe8 (ipv4: Cache input routes in fib_info nexthops.)
introduced a regression for forwarding.

This was hard to reproduce but the symptom was that packets were
delivered to local host instead of being forwarded.

Add a separate cache (nh_rth_forward) to solve the problem.

Many thanks to Chris Clayton for his patience and help.
