#8325 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Marvell/Orion WRT350NV2 is still using a "softswitch" in OpenWRT

Description

The Marvell Orion WRT350Nv2 is still used as "softswitch" by adding "LAN1 LAN2 LAN3 LAN4" to a soft-bridge. This is absurd with a Hardware-Switch that handles 4 GE-Ports on a slow device.

The better choise is, using the mv-switch and create Bridges/vlans the usual way with swconfig and usual tools by configure that switchchip directly in hardware and route the different GE-ports via vlans to the CPUs internal GE-Port, like other Routers does.

Is an enhancement possible by using the integrated marvell GE-switch ?

when the dsa-driver for the marvell-switch is loaded, brctl creates a "hardware" brigde.

Actually it doesn't. There was an RFC patch for implementing that in the DSA/bridge logic, but it never got into the kernel (and isn't in OpenWrt). Currently its purely software bridging in linux with DSA (one more reason to drop it).
