PS: and as a saturday afternoon quiz let's think about why "we" should use
$ ip route list default
$ ip route list | grep default
to determine if we in fact have a default route configured.
Exactly right! *clap* *clap* :)
ip link add mydefaultdummy type dummy
ip a add 172.16.1.1 dev mydefaultdummy
ip link set mydefaultdummy up
ip r add 172.20.1.1 via 172.16.1.1 dev mydefaultdummy
i.e. we can have anything _named_ "*default*" in the routing table,
for example our nfsroot might be in that private net.
But that does not mean this route _is_ in fact the default route this
helper function supposedly waits for.
