Subject: Re: [PATCH net] net: bridge: vlan: Add a schedule point during
 VLAN processing

> From: Ido Schimmel <>
> User space can request to delete a range of VLANs from a bridge slave in
> one netlink request. For each deleted VLAN the FDB needs to be traversed
> in order to flush all the affected entries.
> If a large range of VLANs is deleted and the number of FDB entries is

> Fix this by adding a schedule point after each VLAN is deleted to yield
> the CPU, if needed. This is safe because the VLANs are traversed in
