Description (partial)

Catalyst 6500 Sup2T or Catalyst 6880 based VSS may experience instability along with control-plane protocols (Like OSPF, HSRP etc.) reporting timeout/failures.

LMP times out with following messages:

%VSLP-SW1-3-VSLP_LMP_FAIL_REASON: Te1/2/1: Peer info mismatch in hello packet
%VSLP-SW2-3-VSLP_LMP_FAIL_REASON: Te1/2/5: Link down
%VSLP-SW2-2-VSL_DOWN:   Last VSL interface Te1/2/5 went down
%SATMGR-SW2-3-ERR_DUAL_ACTIVE_DETECT_INCAPABLE: channel group <port-ch #> is no longer dual-active detection capable

This issue is seen in Catalyst 6500 / 6800 VSS with Sup2T engines running 15.1 SY releases.
WS-X6904-40G ports in the same port-group are used for both VSL and FEX port-channel.
(port-group #1: ports 5-12 and port-group #2: ports 13-20)
