Description (partial)

We can see that we are advertising a Martian NH to IPv4 Peers if the Best path selected is a path with IPv6 NH.

Same prefix is received from a v4 peer and a v6 peer. But the best path selected is a v6 NH. 
When the v4 prefix is received from 2 EBGP neighbors one is a v6 neighbor and the other is a v4 neighbor. 
It advertises a Martian IP address as NH to a v4 iBGP peer.
