Symptom:
When switch port dot1q tunnel is applied and then removed on all the HIF ports using interface range
command, some of the HIF ports go to error-disabled state.

Conditions:
EthPM sends MTS_OPC_ETHPM_PORT_PRE_CFG  msg to FWM for each port. FWM clears the dot1q-tunnel config for the interface, and responds back to EthPM. For each interface, FWM fetches a group of other qinq interfaces which are in the same forwarding instance. If any port in the group has dot1q-tunnel configs, then FWM returns failure to EthPM, and EthPM will bring the port down by error-disabling it. 

 The first few MTS_OPC_ETHPM_PORT_PRE_CFG msgs fail because of the above mentioned reason(i.e. Other
ports in the group have dot1q-tunnel configs). For later msgs, FWM processing succeeds because other
ports in qinq group were already err-disabled, and they are not part of the group anymore.

Nexus 6004 upgrade nightmare
I have now had 2 weekends ruined by a botched ISSU upgrade on 2 pairs of nexus 6004.  We are going from 6.0.2.N2.2 to 7.0.5.N!.1 and each time I encountered a bug.  Last week it was an igmp snooping bug.  Turn off igmp snooping and it will be fine.  So this week I did that and no, it wasnt fine.  I hit a new bug regarding sending BPDUs down dual sided VPCs (ouch).  Thank you very much.  Has anyone else had these kinds of problems with ISSU upgrades?  Im have done 15 pairs of 5ks in the last 2 months...the ...
