[ Upstream commit 41b4bd986f86331efc599b9a3f5fb86ad92e9af9 ]

In case we can't find a ->dumpit callback for the requested
(family,type) pair, we fall back to (PF_UNSPEC,type). In effect, we're
in the same situation as if userspace had requested a PF_UNSPEC
dump. For RTM_GETROUTE, that handler is rtnl_dump_all, which calls all
the registered RTM_GETROUTE handlers.

The requested table id may or may not exist for all of those
families. commit ae677bbb4441 ("net: Don't return invalid table id
error when dumping all families") fixed the problem when userspace
explicitly requests a PF_UNSPEC dump, but missed the fallback case.

For example, when we pass ipv6.disable=1 to a kernel with
the (PF_INET6, RTM_GETROUTE) handler isn't registered, so we end up in
rtnl_dump_all, and listing IPv6 routes will unexpectedly print:

# ip -6 r
Error: ipv4: MR table does not exist.
Dump terminated

commit ae677bbb4441 introduced the dump_all_families variable, which
gets set when userspace requests a PF_UNSPEC dump. However, we can't
simply set the family to PF_UNSPEC in rtnetlink_rcv_msg in the
fallback case to get dump_all_families == true, because some messages
types (for example RTM_GETRULE and RTM_GETNEIGH) only register the
PF_UNSPEC handler and use the family to filter in the kernel what is
dumped to userspace. We would then export more entries, that userspace
would have to filter. iproute does that, but other programs may not.

Instead, this patch removes dump_all_families and updates the
RTM_GETROUTE handlers to check if the family that is being dumped is
their own. When it's not, which covers both the intentional PF_UNSPEC
dumps (as dump_all_families did) and the fallback case, ignore the
missing table id error.
