I thought the query was really "how can I tell if an IP is local,
xor if it requires going through a router". I have no idea what
the reference to "kernel state" means - obviously the kernel uses
the same sequence of increasingly specific routes to determine how
to handle a packet. the routes are not privileged (/sbin/ip route show
works fine as a normal user)
