Hello,
Just for your information (sorry for cross-posting) , a new project
has been lunched:

The goal is to provide a BFD (Bidirectional Forwarding Detection)
implementation for Quagga.
Currently only BGP can take advantage of BFD API - support for other
will be added subsequently.

You can download patches (for Quagga 0.99.9)  i.e. general patch for
bfdd and patch for bgpd  from the project's page:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/bfdd/

Project is in a rather early stage (thought is marked as Beta),
basically bfd daemon works "rather" stable, but since it wasn't tested
extensively for sure has bugs.

I can confirm that at this stage following drafts have been implemented:
draft-ietf-bfd-base-06.txt
draft-ietf-bfd-generic-03.txt
draft-ietf-bfd-v4v6-1hop-06.txt
draft-ietf-bfd-multihop-05.txt
read files attached to release for details.

Project was tested successfully with recent versions of Juniper JUNOS,
haven't got a chance yet to test is with Cisco.

Feedback is welcomed.

Enjoy...
