the test scenario is the following. one of my testers of the dd-wrt
firmware is using a iptv stream from the france isp "orange".
he just bridged the iptv vlan interface which has no ip (the isp doesnt
provide a ip configuration here) to a bridge and played with igmp
snooping to avoid flooding of all ports within the same bridge.
he found out that this setting simply does not work with the current
kernel, but does
if this patch has been removed. we used kernel 4.4 in the test scenario.
all latest revision.
i was able to reproduce the same problem on kernel 4.9 and 4.14 on a
different device using a german isp based iptv stream. same effect.
after reverting the problematic code it worked again.
