Thanks for your comments! An RFE has been written to upstream patch 88b7bc7. Before I submit the code, I think we should fix this bug. I think we can change the parameter “host” to “agent” in the following lines:
Please let me know what you think of the proposal.

I agree, this is a bug. I think the only reason it hasn’t been an issue is because the only user of the get_fdb_entries RPC is the BGP agent and it is not passing a host in the request (it is None), therefore it excludes the attempt to try and access the parameter as an agent based on the condition in _create_agent_fdb.
Here is the BGP caller:

I think that there exists a bug in patch 88b7bc7. Function _get_fdb_entries will call function _create_agent_fdb by following line:
The variable “host” will be used to call _create_agent_fdb. However function _create_agent_fdb expects variable “agent”:
I think this should be a bug. Could you please help review and comment?
