EVPN VSX support

Ethernet VPN (EVPN) is supported with VSX . The two VSX pairs act as independent BGP routing entities to the other VXLAN tunnel endpoints (VTEPs) or spines for control packets. However, in the datapath, both of them act as a single logical VTEP. This is achieved by using different IP addresses for establishing the BGP session and using a common IP as next-hop to represent the VTEP.
