Description (partial)

When the MVPN feature is enabled and the traffic is flowing across between the two mvpn sites, it is possible that the traffic might blackhole when using data mdts.

1. Data MDT configured on the source PE router. 

When the receiver PE is yet to create the S,G but receives the DATA MDT mapping advertisements, from the source PE
the black holing might happen. If the  Data mdt advertisements come in AFTER the S,G route (customer route) is created, then, the receiver will switch to using the data mdt advertisements and there will be no traffic loss.

Typically this happens for the ASM groups in the customer VRF.  If SSM  is deployed, then we should not be hitting this problem as the SG route is first created on the receiver PE before it is sent all the way up to the source PE.
