So, yeah, both use cases are valid, and I did in fact mean uppers of the
bridge, but now that you're raising the point, do we actually support
properly the use case with an 8021q upper of a bridged port? My
understanding is that this VLAN-tagged traffic should not be switched on
RX. So without some ACL rule on ingress that the driver must install, I
don't see how that can work properly.
