Multicast routing questions

Ok thanks, I understand this case.
But the problem is that we perform a lot of unnecessary mforward calls from ip_input.
The mrt route cache lookup is performed thanks to the src/dst addresse couple.
The interface of the cached route does not match the current interface and that is what prevents "infinite" loops.
Is that really how it is meant to be done?

I think this can be used for the case, when on the router some app has
been joined to multicast group on the specific interface used as
outgoing in send_packet.
