Expose route-map when BGP routes are programmed in to FIB
Closed, ResolvedPublicFEATURE REQUEST



Similar to how 'set protocols ospf route-map ospf-in' generates a FRR configuration statement 'ip protocol ospf route-map ospf-in', we would like to adjust routes when FIB is programmed with routes originating from BGP.

This can be used to selectively prefer BGP routes over OSPF, in conjunction with T1974.

FRR has this functionality built-in, creating this task for us to provide a simply patch to define the route-map.

ie: Create VyOS configuration command 'set protocols bgp 64500 route-map bgp-in' to set 'ip protocol bgp route-map bgp-in' in FRR.

I've attached a simple patch to expose FRRouting's built-in capability of being able to apply a route-map to routes that are submitted to the FIB from BGP to VyOS.
