Thanks, this is a good idea. I reviewed all the test cases and it should works
for most of them. Only the SRv6 tests are a little complex as they use 2 id
number for netns name. e.g. the setup_hs() in I plan to add the tmp string between the hs/rt and
ids. e.g. hs-xxxxxx-t100-1, rt-xxxxxx-1. I will have a try first.
