[ovs-discuss] BFD implementation and integration with fastfailover group

I am new to openvswitch and am trying to implement a mechanism to check the
port live status of a switch using BFD and switch the port in case of
failure using the fastfailover group. I was able to run BFD on the two end
point switches using the commands

*ovs-vsctl add-br br0*>*   ovs-vsctl add-port br0 gre0 -- set
interface gre0 type=gre options:remote_ip:*
ovs-vsctl set interface gre0 bfd:enable=true*

The version I used was openvswitch* 2.0.2 but when I was using the version
cloned from Github yesterday,
 I was unable to establish a BFD session. Is there something wrong I am

Also, How do I integrate the output of BFD with the fastfailover group so
that the action bucket which relates to the live port is executed?

Kindly, help.
