Hi Mark and all,

Sorry for this late reply, I have my head in the wrong place lately.

I would like these two bits considered for freeze inclusion:

1. VXLAN support:
2. Multibridge / colocated chassis support:

The former needs some minor adjustments (will send an update
tomorrow), the latter has all comments / known issues addressed.

Let me know if there's still time to consider these two pieces.
