My host was running a slightly older kernel (did not have the null_entry
check in the dump route path for one).

As for trapping null_entry on getroute, this changes user experience.
Right now you always get a route response for IPv6 with the error set as
rta_error. This patch changes that. I am fine with it since it makes
IPv6 more like IPv4:

# ip -6 ro get 2001:db8:12::1
RTNETLINK answers: Network is unreachable

But, if we are going to do this then err should be set based on
rt->dst.error (ENOENT is not the right error) and the commit message
should state the change.
