Note, commit ef299cc3fa1a ("net_sched: cls_route: remove the right
filter from hashtable") came out in the 5.6 kernel release, in March of
2020, and was also backported to all relevant stable kernel releases at
the beginning of April, 2020:
	4.4.218 4.9.218 4.14.175 4.19.114 5.4.29 5.5.14

How did 5.10 get messed up in this, it was not released until December
2020?
