Technical Summary

    This specification provides a solution for when there is an 
    IP forwarding failure as detected by BFD, but IS-IS control packets
    continue to be delivered and so the adjacency stays up. The original
    BFD specification allows for IGP adjacencies to form without paired
    BFD sessions to allow for mixed-use of BFD on a link. This
    specification adds a hello TLV that advertises BFD use so that 
    adjacency state to participating routers can depend on the state of 
    a paired BFD session.
