With this patch the following two patches are backported:

* bridge: fix parsing of MLDv2 reports
* bridge: allow setting hash_max + multicast_router if interface is down

The former one is an important fix which got just applied to the net-tree
and is queued for stable. The latter is a patch which is needed to make
the hash_max and multicast_router attributes configurable through
netifd.

+Subject: [PATCH] bridge: fix parsing of MLDv2 reports
+
+When more than a multicast address is present in a MLDv2 report, all but
+the first address is ignored, because the code breaks out of the loop if
+there has not been an error adding that address.
+
+This has caused failures when two guests connected through the bridge
+tried to communicate using IPv6. Neighbor discoveries would not be
+transmitted to the other guest when both used a link-local address and a
+static address.
+
+This only happens when there is a MLDv2 querier in the network.
+
+The fix will only break out of the loop when there is a failure adding a
+multicast address.
+
+The mdb before the patch:
+
+dev ovirtmgmt port vnet0 grp ff02::1:ff7d:6603 temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port vnet1 grp ff02::1:ff7d:6604 temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port bond0.86 grp ff02::2 temp
+
+After the patch:
+
+dev ovirtmgmt port vnet0 grp ff02::1:ff7d:6603 temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port vnet1 grp ff02::1:ff7d:6604 temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port bond0.86 grp ff02::fb temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port bond0.86 grp ff02::2 temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port bond0.86 grp ff02::d temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port vnet0 grp ff02::1:ff00:76 temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port bond0.86 grp ff02::16 temp
+dev ovirtmgmt port vnet1 grp ff02::1:ff00:77 temp

+Subject: [PATCH] bridge: allow setting hash_max + multicast_router if
+ interface is down
+MIME-Version: 1.0
+Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
+Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit
+
+Network managers like netifd (used in OpenWRT for instance) try to
+configure interface options after creation but before setting the
+interface up.
+
+Unfortunately the sysfs / bridge currently only allows to configure the
+hash_max and multicast_router options when the bridge interface is up.
+But since br_multicast_init() doesn't start any timers and only sets
+default values and initializes timers it should be save to reconfigure
+the default values after that, before things actually get active after
+the bridge is set up.
