[P4-dev] Standardize P4Runtime controller role definition scheme

Hi all,

The P4 API WG is currently considering standardizing one possible role
definition scheme for P4Runtime arbitration (
https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/p4runtime/docs/v1.0.0-rc3/P4Runtime-Spec.html#sec-master-slave-arbitration-and-controller-replication).
This would enable two or more different control entities to manage
different parts of the pipeline (e.g. L2 tables / L3 tables / INT logic /
...) without interfering with each other. Before moving forward with a
concrete proposal, we would like to gauge interest from the P4 community.
If you are interested in this feature and you feel comfortable presenting
your use-case in front of the WG (ideally at the October 24th meeting),
please let me know (antonin at barefootnetworks.com).

Thanks,

-- 
Antonin
