[linux-dvb] Using brctl with a dvb interface

Hello everyone,

I am trying to set up a bridge (with brctl) which will use an ethernet
interface and a DVB interface. For the moment I make the bridge only
with the dvb interface in order to verify it works.
This dvb interface is set up with the "dvbnet -p" command. then I
bridged the interface :

ifconfig dvb0_0 hw ether aa:aa:aa:aa:aa:aa

brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 dvb0_0

ifconfig dvb0_0 192.168.111.111 promisc up
ifconfig br0 up

But this doesn't work : dvb0_0 receives the datas (it can be seen with
ifconfig) but br0 doesn't.
I have read here :
http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2005-July/003494.html
that since kernel 2.6.12.2 bridging was unoperative. Has this been corrected ?

Any ideas ?

François
