Why wouldn't you use the LMP Hello to detect control channel failure? This
is exactly what it is designed for. From draft-ietf-mpls-lsp-tunnel-08.txt,
"This (RSVP Hello) mechanism is intended to be used when notification of
failures is not available and unnumbered links are not used, or when
the failure detection mechanisms provided by the link layer are not
sufficient for timely node failure detection."
