Description Ruben Kerkhof 2011-08-29 10:24:19 UTC
I'd like to change the MAC address aging time on a bridge device.
Currently, there's DELAY and STP, but no variable to change setageingtime.

Since there are a few other options which can be set on bridge, maybe you can introduce BRIDGE_OPTS, just like you did with ETHTOOL_OPTS?

What do you think of the above?

Comment 2 Ruben Kerkhof 2011-08-30 21:57:33 UTC
Even better,  this also allows me to set stuff like multicast_snooping and other /sys entries.
