This version of the bridge utilities is for Linux 2.4 and 2.6,
it uses the sysfs interface if possible on Linux 2.6.
The code repository is:
Advantages of the new code are:
- Support for multiple bridge port groups (i.e. multiple independent
bridges in one machine).
- Each bridge is seen as a logical device, which allows you to do
firewalling between port groups for example.
- Everything is dynamic; bridges are created dynamically using the
userspace configuration tool, ports are 'enslaved' dynamically, etc.
- It is being actively maintained.
- It uses a hash table for MAC addresses, not an AVL tree.
- It's small (currently 4 pages of i386 code) and modular.
- The source isn't a mess.
- It works as a module.
