I think it would be very good to say a few words about the user space
STP helper at /sbin/bridge-stp, and that the kernel only has full support
for the legacy STP, whereas newer protocols are all handled in user
space. But I don't know a lot of technical details about it, so I would
hope somebody else chimes in with a paragraph inserted here somewhere :)
