[Bridge] Flooding before or after NF_BR_LOCAL_OUT hook

Hi all,

Has it been previously discussed whether bridge flooding should be done before or after the NF_BR_LOCAL_OUT hook?

Today it is done AFTER but logically it seems like it should be done BEFORE (on "ingress").  I think this would be analogous to operation of the NF_IP_LOCAL_OUT hook when IP multicasting.

Regards,
