DPV means Destination Port Vector, and an ATU entry with a DPV of 0
essentially means a FDB entry pointing nowhere, so it will drop the
packet. That's a slight problem with Hans' implementation, the bridge
thinks that the locked FDB entry belongs to port X, but in reality it
matches on all bridged ports (since it matches by FID). FID allocation
in mv88e6xxx is slightly strange, all VLAN-unaware bridge ports,
belonging to any bridge, share the same FID, so the FDB databases are
not exactly isolated from each other.
