This series of patches provides an ability to add VLAN IDs to the bridge ports. This is similar to what can be found in most switches. The bridge port may have any number of VLANs added to it including vlan 0 for untagged traffic. When vlans are added to the port, only traffic tagged with particular vlan will forwarded over this port. Additionally, vlan ids are added to FDB entries and become part of the lookup. This way we correctly identify the FDB entry. There are still pieces missing. I don't yet support adding a static fdb entry with a particular vlan. There is no netlink support for carrying a vlan id. I'd like to hear thoughts of whether this is usufull and something we should persue. The default behavior ofthe bridge is unchanged if no vlans have been configured. Vlad Yasevich (5): bridge: Add vlan check to forwarding path bridge: Add vlan to unicast fdb entries bridge: Add vlan id to multicast groups bridge: Add private ioctls to configure vlans on bridge ports bridge: Add sysfs interface to display VLANS include/linux/if_bridge.h | 4 ++ net/bridge/br_device.c | 2 +- net/bridge/br_fdb.c | 71 ++++++++++++++++++------------- net/bridge/br_forward.c | 17 +++++++- net/bridge/br_if.c | 103 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ net/bridge/br_input.c | 18 +++++++- net/bridge/br_ioctl.c | 31 +++++++++++++ net/bridge/br_multicast.c | 64 +++++++++++++++++++--------- net/bridge/br_private.h | 14 +++++- net/bridge/br_sysfs_if.c | 28 ++++++++++++ 10 files changed, 296 insertions(+), 56 deletions(-) -- 220.127.116.11
