Mobility procedures for asymmetric IRB is very similar to symmetric IRB except 
for ARP response handling by the source NVE. So, I added the following sentence 
to the sections 4.1, 4.2, and 4.3 in rev07.

“In case of the asymmetric IRB, the source NVE also updates its ARP table with 
the received adjacency information and in case of the symmetric IRB, the source 
NVE removes the entry associated with the received <MAC, IP> from its local ARP

Subject: [bess] Mobility procedure in 

Section 4 (Mobility Procedure) of the draft says the following:

   This section describes mobility procedures for both
   symmetric and asymmetric IRB.

However, it describes the mobility procedure only for symmetric IRB (section 
4.1). Mobility procedure for asymmetric IRB is not described in the draft.

Is the mobility procedure for asymmetric IRB expected to be described in an 
upcoming version of the draft?
