Hello, after moving to a 2.6 host I am noticing that a bridge created with brctl drops any packets exceeding the MTU of 1500 (1514 including eth header).

Attached to the bridge are tun-taps .  Searching around it appears that as of 2.6 the bridge uses the MTU of the attached interfaces (1500 in this case).  As I need to send jumbo frames I need to get the MTU up to 9100 on the tun/tap interfaces.

Is this possible?

How can I configure tun/tap to behave as gigabit Ethernet interfaces as opposed to standard Ethernet interfaces?

Thanks for any help you can give,
John
