Yes, that is already supported (use-ifaddr needs attention though). In my next
patch-set where I added the initial global vlan mcast options I added control
for per-vlan querier with per-vlan querier elections and so on. The use-ifaddr
needs more work though, that's why I still haven't added that option. I need
to add the per-vlan/port router control option so we'll have mostly everything
ready in a single release.

I don't have it public yet because I need to polish the support, currently
it's very rough, enough for testing purposes for these patch-sets. :)
I plan to work on that after I finish with the per-vlan/port router control.
