Hello Andrew,

The current driver implementation uses only a single FDB for the switch,
so  it is not possible configure multiple flooding domains to accommodate
ports partitioning.
 
The configuration that you mentioned will be possible when support for
multiple FDBs in the switch is added. Ports added to the same bridge
will have their flooding domain limited to a specific FDB.

Switch ports partitioning is a feature on the roadmap. I will add this
information to the TODO list.

Best regards,
Razvan Stefanescu
