Serge, looks like we need to be careful with those two. At least one of them: "bridge: only expire the mdb entry when query is received" was reverted with 3.12. The commit message looks a bit like they might have packed several reverts into one. And it references "bridge: disable snooping if there is no querier" as the one making the reverted stuff obsolete.

Some updates the bridge subsystem now, by default, disable multicast traffic without IGMP Querier being enabled on that bridge. The corresponding Fedora/RHEL bug tracks the progress/updates of this specific change in relation to Fedora. https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=880035 (I have yet to find a similar bug report in Ubuntu so I have created this bug to help the Ubuntu community identify multicast issues that may arise since April 2013 in U12.04 LTS and presumably other Ubuntu releases as backports are made and break regression testing.) Using the latest patches in U12.04.2 LTS this following addition, with some modifications, can be made to the udev rules will enable multicast on virbr# bridge: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=880035#c38 While this is an improvement/correction to KVM bridge networking it has broken existing functionality in U12.04.2 LTS and broke regressed functionality that once worked.
