With the drivers that you currently maintain and with the CPU port being 
always tagged in the VLANs added to the user-facing ports, when you are 
using a non-VLAN aware bridge, do you systematically add an br0.1 upper 
802.1Q device to pop/push the VLAN tag?

I am about ready to submit the changes we discussed to b53, but I am 
still a bit uncomfortable with this part of the change because it will 
make the CPU port follow the untagged attribute of an user-facing port.
