project rstpd at
http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/shemminger/rstp.git can work
if default kernel stp is disabled by calling userspace program
/sbin/bridge-stp and checking the return code.

On 2.4.27 such mechanism is not implemented so should I backport some
kernel code or I can just disable the STP by using the
BRCTL_SET_BRIDGE_STP_STATE ioctl command? There are any drawbacks in
doing so?

Thanks in advance,
