I am not sure if I should have this check either, my initial version didn't
have it either, later I add it because I find out it is checked for rp_filter=0
case too.

On the other hand, loopback always accepts local traffic, so it may be
redundant to check it. So, I am not sure.

What do you think?

It's complicated, Mesos network isolation uses this case:
https://cgit.twitter.biz/mesos/tree/src/slave/containerizer/mesos/isolators/network/port_mapping.cpp

Even if I use a simplified case, it still has to use TC filters and mirred
action to redirect the packet, which I am not sure they fit in fib_tests.sh.

Thanks.
