Increase of Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM) Control Packets

Previously, ExtremeXOS Protocol-Independent Multicast (PIM) implementation sends maximum 1,500 byte-size control packets that can accommodate 175 sources per multicast group.

The size of these control packets has now been increased to accommodate 3,000+ sources per group. This large control packet is fragmented at the IP layer and reassembled at the received node.
