From: Amir Shehata <ashehata@whamcloud.com>

The routing code uses peer_ni for a gateway. However with Mulit-Rail
a gateway could have multiple interfaces on several different
networks. Instead of using a single peer_ni as the gateway we should
be using the peer and let the MR selection code select the best
peer_ni to send to.

This patch moves the gateway from peer to peer_ni. Much of the
code needs to be rewritten in the following patches to account
for that change. This patch disables the routing features by
disabling the code to add/delete routes.

The asymmetric routing detection feature is also modified to
use the MR routing
