>Agree, seems no normal way to avoid ucast leak.

One of the ways could be removing end ports as memembers, leaving only port0:

type: vlan , vid = 100, untag_force = 0x0, reg_mcast = 0x7, unreg_mcast = 0x0, member_list = 0x1

and allow tagged packets to be received by ports beeing non memebers of a vlan:

cpsw_ale_control_set(cpsw->ale, slave_port,

So that only unknown vlans are dropped...
