Subject: [PATCH net] ipv4: return valid RTA_IIF on ip route get

Extend commit 13378cad02afc2adc6c0e07fca03903c7ada0b37
("ipv4: Change rt->rt_iif encoding.") from 3.6 to return valid
RTA_IIF on 'ip route get ... iif DEVICE' instead of rt_iif 0
which is displayed as 'iif *'.

inet_iif is not appropriate to use because skb_iif is not set.
Use the skb->dev->ifindex instead.
