Description Jan Ščotka 2010-06-09 12:44:14 UTC
Description of problem:
due to
new features supporting multicast was added into bridge.
But I found that there is no documatation for 
brctl command in man pages for multicast operation, short set bellow.
So I was unable to use brctl properly with multicast.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

for example these
	setmclmc  	<bridge> <int>		set multicast last member count
	setmcrouter	<bridge> <int>		set multicast router
	setmcsnoop	<bridge> <int>		set multicast snooping
	setmcsqc  	<bridge> <int>		set multicast startup query count
	setmclmi  	<bridge> <time>		set multicast last member interval
	setmcmi   	<bridge> <time>		set multicast membership interval
	setmcqpi  	<bridge> <time>		set multicast querier interval
	setmcqi   	<bridge> <time>		set multicast query interval
	setmcqri  	<bridge> <time>		set multicast query response interval
	setmcqri  	<bridge> <time>		set multicast startup query interval
