Hello everybody, hi Jaime,

I'm mailing to get more information about whether your patch
[PATCH] Add vlan id to bridge forward database
has been accepted so far.
I couldn't find the patched version yet - could you please tell me where I
can get the latest version of the patch or point out a reference to it ?

Has the vlan-aware bridge forwarding already been tested ?

And how about forwarding tagged packets ?
Until now, the bridge always stripped off the tag if present.

I'm currently thinking about extending the sk_buff data structure to
incorporate the vlan tag - to keep the VLAN information present when
exchanging packets from or to the bridge with the 8021q module and also
when a socket is bind to a interface (extending the sockaddr_ll struct in
that case).

Do you think thats's a sane approach ?

Thanks in advance, Faruk
