Actually, on second thought...
If MT7530 supports 8 FIDs and it has 7 ports, then you can assign one
FID to each standalone port or VLAN-unaware bridge it is a member of.
The drivers/net/ethernet/freescale/dpaa2/dpaa2-switch.c driver has a
similar concept, only instead of FID, it manages FDB IDs - each port is
assigned to an FDB ID and it learns and looks up MAC addresses only
within that FDB ID. Every standalone port uses its own fdb_id, and every
port under the same bridge shares the same fdb_id (the fdb_id associated
with a bridge is equal with the fdb_id of the first standalone port that
joins that bridge; every other standalone port that joins a bridge will
change its fdb_id to that of the bridge). When a port leaves a bridge
and becomes standalone again, its fdb_id will again change to the first
unused value. My point is that if you search for "fdb_id" in that driver
you will maybe find some inspiration for how things like this can be
managed. I know it's not 100% the same as your situation (the FDBs in
the dpaa2-switch are selected by the VLAN table, and for that reason,
the dpaa2-switch can only operate as VLAN-aware, and with shared VLAN
learning per FDB), but the same concept can be reused, I think. With
each port and VLAN-unaware bridge having its own FID, I think you will
not have the shortcircuit issue any longer (and with VLAN-aware bridges
you shouldn't have it anyway).
