Subject: [patch net] mlxsw: spectrum_router: Avoid potential packets loss

From: Ido Schimmel <idosch@...lanox.com>

When the structure of the LPM tree changes (f.e., due to the addition of
a new prefix), we unbind the old tree and then bind the new one. This
may result in temporary packet loss.

Instead, overwrite the old binding with the new one.

Fixes: 6b75c4807db3 ("mlxsw: spectrum_router: Add virtual router management")
