Are you aware of configurations employing the VRF device and leaving the
rule for the local table at priority 0?

OK. Will look into that. I didn't like having the local rule first, so
this might the solution.

I'm aware, but not sure this belongs in this patchset. I prefer to deal
with the l3mdev rule and re-ordering of the default rules first, then
move to more advanced use cases.

Thanks David.
