[alcatel-nsp] Bandwidth calculation for Bypass Tunnels in Many-to-one FRR

FRR is defined on the LSPs on Juniper routers as well, but they allow  
some extra tweaking on the interfaces being protected.  ALU does  
support both facility and one-to-one backup.  Neither method reserves  
bandwidth for the bypass tunnels.  There is a command to reserve  
bandwidth under the FRR config portion of the LSP, but it doesn't do  
anything.  In the 7.0 release it simply says "This command is not  
supported in this release".

One would expect the facility bypass bandwidth configuration to be  
located under the interface configuration, but ALU has yet to  
implement bandwidth protection for bypass tunnels.
