My favorite - simple yet smart.

Since a MPLS-TE tunnel is unidirectional, the path R1->R5 is so well demostrated there that the reverse path R5->R1 to traverse all the nodes can be easily engineered, too.

Yet another attempt of mine to form a single end-to-end MPLS-TE tunnel failed miserably, too. The reason why i could come up with is that the RSVP-TE signaling derives from CSPF that builds in the loop prevention.
