Hi Andrew

I suppose you refer to
That will be great to have for my employer.

Regarding the offload_fwd_mark discussion: I did some experiments
yesterday afternoon on the lan9303 driver.

- Driver add the STP address to the ALR(fdb) pointing to CPU port
- In tag_lan9303.c rcv() set offload_fwd_mark if destination is
   not STP address.

In addition; I found out that my fresh lan9303_xmit_use_arl() is wrong:
Multicast and broadcasts must not be sent via the ALR.

  - use ALR on transmit if bridged and destination is unicast.

Then it looks as if the system is doing the right thing, both for
incomming and outgoing packets. Including STP BPDUs both when
STP is enabled and not.

I will have to test more though when back at office next week.
