Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/2 V2] vxlan fdb replace an existing entry

> Add support to replace an existing entry found in the
> vxlan fdb database. The entry in question is identified
> by its unicast mac address and the destination information
> is changed. If the entry is not found, it is added in the
> forwarding database. This is similar to changing an entry
> in the neighbour table.
> Multicast mac addresses can not be changed with the replace
> option.
> This is useful for virtual machine migration when the
> destination of a target virtual machine changes. The replace
> feature can be used instead of delete followed by add.
> Resubmitted because net-next was closed last week.
