Disabling forwarding per interface via sysctl continues to allow
forwarding. This is contrary to the sysctl documentation stating that
the forwarding sysctl is per interface, whereas currently it is only
the sysctl for all interfaces that has an effect on forwarding. The
solution is to drop any received packets instead of forwarding them
if the ingress device has a per-device forwarding sysctl that is unset.
