Hi Alexandre,

to be honest, I am also not particularly happy with the current linux bridge based 
implementation, because

1.) I does not work 100% out of the box (needs veth hack). Difficult to explain to users.
2.) iptables chains grows if we have many VM (clumsy)
3.) does not work with OVS

So I wonder if we could use a similar approach for linux bridge instead?
We currently have:

veth0<-->vmbr0<-->tapXXXiY

vmbr0<-->vethXXXiY<-->fwbrXXXiY<-->tapXXXiY

I wonder if that would help to solve above problems? And what performance would be get?
