   The IETF TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links)
   protocol provides least cost pair-wise data forwarding without
   configuration in multi-hop networks with arbitrary topologies and
   link technologies. TRILL supports for multi-pathing of both unicast
   and multicast traffic. Devices that implement the TRILL protocol are
   called RBridges (Routing Bridges) or TRILL Switches.

   The ESADI (End Station Address Distribution Information) protocol is
   a VLAN (Virtual Local Area Network) scoped way that TRILL switches
   can communicate end station addresses to each other.  An RBridge
   announcing VLAN-x connectivity (normally a VLAN-x appointed
   forwarder) and running the TRILL ESADI protocol can receive remote
   address information and/or transmit local address information for
   VLAN-x to other such RBridges.  This document updates RFC 6325,
   specifically the documentation of the ESADI protocol.
