platform: workaround deletion of IPv4 route with metric 0

Deleting routes with metric 0 might end up deleting other
routes with a different metric.

Workaround this in platform to only delete a route with
metric 0 if such a route can be found prior to deletion.

Don't only look into the cache (which might be out of date).
Instead refetch the route we are about to delete to be sure.

There is still a race that we might end up deleting the wrong
