Description of problem:
We need to allow ageing to be set in ifcfg-* scripts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Add "AGEING=0" to an ifcfg-* file that is a bridge
No change in aging value when you run "brctl showstp <bridge>"
"brctl showstp <bridge>" shows "max age 0.00"
A recent problem with internal blade switches not forwarding traffic led us to needing to disable ageing completely. This method for manipulating the ageing of the bridge is much preferable to a standalone script executed after the interface is already up.
There is an upstream patch for this already:
