Thanks a lot for the response.

Given that, how could the graceful restart be handled in the forwarding 
plane? Any pointers/ideas?

I don't know the details of the FPM interface, however, as its coming from
zebra I don't think it has any knowledge of BGP EoRs in it.

The messages from zebra, either via ZServ or FPM, are not delayed or
synchronised with routing protocol daemon events/states.
