Subject: [PATCH RFC] net: dsa: Make switches VLAN aware when enslaved into a bridge

Commit 2ea7a679ca2a ("net: dsa: Don't add vlans when vlan filtering is
disabled") changed the behavior of DSA switches when the switch ports
are enslaved into the bridge and only pushed the VLAN configuration down
to the switch if the bridge is configured with VLAN filtering enabled.

This is unfortunately wrong, because what vlan_filtering configures is a
policy on the acceptance of VLAN tagged frames with an unknown VID.

vlan_filtering=0 means a frame with a VLAN tag that is not part of the
VLAN table should be allowed to ingress the switch, and vlan_fltering=1
would reject that frame.

Fixes: 2ea7a679ca2a ("net: dsa: Don't add vlans when vlan filtering is disabled")
Signed-off-by: Florian Fainelli <>

I checked with Jiri and he confirmed that our interpretention of
vlan_filtering in DSA was incorrect and that it does denote whether the
switch should be doing VID ingress policy checking.

You mentioned in the commit message some problems without being too
specific about them which is why I am putting the same checks in
mv88e6xxx in order not to break your use cases. Let me know if you want
to drop that hunk entirely.
