Re: CRS112/QCA-8511 switch chip features

To get the most out of the CRS-1xx hardware you should use the VLAN filtering only on the Switch, the same as pre-6.41. Doing it on the Bridge disables Hardware Offloading and puts everything through the CPU.
You need a CRS-3xx to use VLAN filtering on the Bridge.
