Explanation for gateway functionality

when 'gateway'
              return "route del default dev eth1; route add default gw #{value}; route add 224.10.10.6 dev eth1"

This is used by the OTF application (forwarder)

Command 1) When using a forwarder (or static routing), the user may need to specify a default route to the next hop, to do this one has to disable the existing default route

Command 2) Add default route to the next hop

Command 3) With this setup, OML sends its multicast trafic on wrong default route. Hence, we have to add an entry in the table to handle multicast OML traffic
