To my understanding, context 0 can always access all interfaces and is
the context that sets up routing. So no, you can't prevent context 0
from having a gateway. And same time nothing will prevent you from
setting up the default routing via eth1. I the other machines have no
eth1 access, you need to alter their outgoing IP via SNAT.
Might ofc be wrong, but then someone will reply and I will get it
right myself, too ;)
