Second set of three with the end goal of enabling IPv6 gateways with IPv4

This set moves:
- the ipv4 tracepoint to take a fib_nh_common and updates it to handle
  a v6 gateway.
- consolidates route notifications to use the same fill functions
  for both ipv4 and ipv6

- comments from Martin:
  + renamed FIB_RES_NH to FIB_RES_NHC
  + removed family check from fib_result_prefsrc
  + in fib_nexthop_info, renamed nexthop arg to nhc and dropped for_ipv4 arg

- dropped patches moving cached routes and exception buckets to
  fib_nh_common. The goal is allowing a fib6_nh to be used with an
  IPv4 route. The hold up is the need for separate exception buckets -
  one for v6 routes and one for v4 routes. When all of the nexthop patches
  are in, adding a secondi exception bucket pushes IPv6 fib6_info
  allocations over 256 which means fib6_info allocations roll up to 512.
  Hence, deferring the patches until some data mining can be done to keep
  the allocations at 256.

David Ahern (5):
  ipv4: Update fib_table_lookup tracepoint to take common nexthop
  ipv4: Add fib_nh_common to fib_result
  ipv4: Refactor nexthop attributes in fib_dump_info
  ipv4: Change fib_nexthop_info and fib_add_nexthop to take
  ipv6: Flip to fib_nexthop_info
