fonera+/2.0 marvel Marvell 88E6060 einable hardware switching between two ports (lan/wan) not working / how to configure it

Hi NBD, I read a log of the tickets you worked on lately. You seem to care quite a lot about the switch/ethernet code. I've spent quite some time the last two days setting up a working setup on the Fonera+. I'm referring to information from the tickets: #5068, #3507, and especially:

On the trunk snapshot (2010-01-06) and 8.09.2-RC2 I tried to do hardware switching between the two ethernet ports. Unfortunately I learning that the ports are configured by the driver (mvswitch.c or dsa?) as individual interfaces (eth0.1, eth0.2), thus bridging is possible (slow - max ~17mbit as to my measurements) but no hardware switching as I couldn't find any tool to manage the switch.

Would you mind clearing up (explain) the issue a bit, including where I could eventually change the setup of the ports (if it's in the code directly it's fine too) and if hardware briding is possible by now. I'm not a programmer though, so altering things might work, writing things from scratch won't :-) Testing will though.
