I found two possible problems. The first is that in the IPv4 case we
might get more trace point hits than packets (ratio higher than 1)
because of the additional FIB lookups for source validation. Fixed by
disabling source validation:

The second problem (which I believe is the one you encountered) is that
we might miss certain trace point hits if they happen from the ksoftirqd
task instead of the mausezahn task. Fixed by:

Ran both tests in a loop:

# for i in $(seq 1 20); do ./fib_tests.sh -t ipv4_mpath_list; done
# for i in $(seq 1 20); do ./fib_tests.sh -t ipv6_mpath_list; done

And verified that the results are stable. Also verified that the tests
reliably fail when reverting both fixes:

8423be8926aa ipv6: ignore dst hint for multipath routes
6ac66cb03ae3 ipv4: ignore dst hint for multipath routes

Can you please test with the proposed modifications?

Thanks
