    [BRIDGE]: receive path optimization · 7ce54e3f
    Stephen Hemminger authored
    This improves the bridge local receive path by avoiding going
    through another softirq.  The bridge receive path is already being called
    from a netif_receive_skb() there is no point in going through another
    receiveq round trip.
    Recursion is limited because bridge can never be a port of a bridge
    so handle_bridge() always returns.
