[P4-dev] Error: Table has no action my_drop

It looks like relatively recent changes either to p4c, or to
demo1.p4_16.p4, caused a duplicate action with identical names to be
created in the compiled BMv2 JSON file, and in such cases,
simple_switch_CLI cannot automatically resolve the "short names" currently
shown in the README instructions, and you must instead use the full
hierarchical name for action "my_drop", which are:

I will soon commit a change to the README.md in the demo1 directory to
update those commands to the following, which should work without error

    table_set_default ipv4_da_lpm ingressImpl.my_drop
    table_set_default mac_da ingressImpl.my_drop
    table_set_default send_frame egressImpl.my_drop
