You are right. Update of source address fixes only some specific cases.
Also, I'm not fun of doing several lookups just because we found additional
next hops. It looks like (for ipv4 case) fib_table_lookup() should select
correct next-hop based on hash and update source ip and output interface
for flowi4. But right now flowi4 is constant and such change looks more
like net-next improvement. Or do you have another solution?
