Why doesn't linux do dead gateway detection for multipath routes? To be more specific, why isn't something like fib_detect_death() called inside fib_select_multipath(), whereas it is called in fib_select_default()?
Isn't this a violation of the MUST part of section 22.214.171.124 of RFC 1122?
126.96.36.199 Dead Gateway Detection
The IP layer MUST be able to detect the failure of a "next- hop" gateway that is listed in its route cache and to choose an alternate gateway (see Section 188.8.131.52).
