I would like to cleanup and submit the current datapath to the kernel
drivers staging tree. This would get wider review from kernel developers.

My long term goal is to have a unified interface (netlink) for bridging that
works for both existing bridge and openvswitch.

BUT it would also mean removing all the compatiablity code for older kernels.
