We are talking about the bridge master device's default_pvid which can
be set prior to any port being enslaved into the bridge. As of today, if
you enslave a port of a switch into a bridge, you need to properly
configure the CPU/management port as well otherwise things just wont' be
working. At the time we enslave the first port into the bridge, there is
no notification AFAICT that is generated to tell us about what the
bridge master device's default_pvid is.

The general use case is that the CPU port on switches that have such a
thing is just a normal port on which you should be able to configure
exactly the VLAN membership and attributes.

With DSA switches today, we cannot do that, because there is no network
interface exposed for the CPU port (and there should not be one), so
when you target the bridge master device, e.g: br0, we can generate
events towards the switch driver that map to the CPU port.

There are many reasons for trying to do that, if we don't support such a
thing, then we need to have the CPU port be part of all VLAN IDs that
get added to ports, as a tagged member (because if untagged, you can't
differentiate traffic anymore).

Regarding your suggestion, we could certainly change vlan_filtering to
take several values:

0: disabled
1: secure
2: check

Or something like that.
