The changes should not break anything for other platforms.

The worst thing that may happen is that a nexthop shows up as "onlink"
in the RIB but does not actually get installed as "onlink" into the FIB.

Imho that solution is preferrable to introducing #ifdefs but if there is
a concensus that we should have that #ifdefed, so be it.
