Hi Felix, thanks and I really appreciate your efforts to create a
successful, stable and first LEDE release :). So if it's going to
be disabled in that first LEDE release, that'd be fine by me.

Nevertheless, Jow or Felix, could you forward the tickets which
seemed related to bridge multicast snooping to me? So I can check
whether it should be disabled in Gluon, too. (we took some
precautions with a robustness variable of 3 instead of 2 and way
lower querier intervals in Gluon, but not sure what kind of issues
were reported for LEDE)

Regards, Linus
