Linux has supported 32-bit routing table IDs since 2006 (2.6.19)...

  commit 9e762a4a89b302cb3b26a1f9bb33eff459eaeca9
  Author: Patrick McHardy <kaber at trash.net>

    [NET]: Introduce RTA_TABLE/FRA_TABLE attributes
    Introduce RTA_TABLE route attribute and FRA_TABLE routing rule attribute
    to hold 32 bit routing table IDs. Usespace compatibility is provided by
    continuing to accept and send the rtm_table field, but because of its
    limited size it can only carry the low 8 bits of the table ID. This
    implies that if larger IDs are used, _all_ userspace programs using them
    need to use RTA_TABLE.

ip-route(8) supports this just fine...

However, this is all documented very poorly.  :-(

peace & happiness,
