I have finally tested a version of my fix for this problem that I think =
is suitable for general use. If someone could review and commit this =
patch it would be appreciated. I have tested this with multiple physical =
and Xen interfaces.
This patch changes the bridge driver so that it hooks the struct ifnet =
if_input field rather than tapping the bridged packet out of =
ether_input(). This allows the bridge to call ether_input() repeatedly =
(if necessary) without having to worry about a recursive packet storm.
My diff is at http://home.must-have-coffee.gen.nz/lloyd/bridge.diff.
