parent[BRIDGE]: use llc for receiving STP packets (diff)
[BRIDGE]: allow show/store of group multicast address
Bridge's communicate with each other using Spanning Tree Protocol over a standard multicast address. There are times when testing or layering bridges over existing topologies or tunnels, when it is useful to use alternative multicast addresses for STP packets. The 802.1d standard has some unused addresses, that can be used for this. This patch is restrictive in that it only allows one of the possible addresses in the standard.
