It's possible we simply are looking at different source trees, but I
have the -EINVAL return in 4.8 route.c sources happening due to the
assignment on line 2175 and the jump on line 2220.

Right. It should probably do the check here, and return
ERR_PTR(-EINVAL), the same as the v4 version, so that ret codes can be
checked consistently.

Thanks for looking into this. If you're backed up and would like me to
submit a patch, just let me know, and I'll give it my best shot.
