Again, the only one I know that struggles is Quagga.

But I've not heard any reports from anyone running Brocade, Nokia (ALU),
Huawei, e.t.c. that IS-IS doesn't work or is quite limited.

I can say both Cisco and Juniper have no issues at all in this area.

Arista are young in the routing space, but I am confident their
implementations will be up to par soon (if they aren't already).
