Absolutely agree with Ido, there are many different ways to achieve it through
the bridge (e.g. generic bridge helpers to be used by bpf, directly by tc or new br tc hooks
to name a few). I'd personally be excited to see any of these implemented as they
could open the door for a lot other interesting use cases. Unfortunately I'm currently swamped
with per-vlan multicast support, after that depending on time availability I could look
into this unless someone beats me to it. :)

Cheers,
Nik
