[lustre-devel] [PATCH 15/23] lnet: Preferred NI logic breaks MR routing

Edge (final-hop) routers typically use the non-multi-rail destination
(NMR_DST) send case. i.e. they treat the destination as
non-multi-rail. The reason for this is that we do not want routers to
modify the destination peer interface selected by the message
originator. As a result of using the NMR_DST send case, edge routers
set a preferred NI, and then continue to use that NI, because it's
preferred, even if the NI goes down and the router has other healthy
interfaces available to it. Routers do not need to use the preferred
NI selection logic when they are forwarding a message, so modify the
NMR_DST algorithm to allow routers to select any suitable local NI.
