I think BMF is very similar to SMF.

Most kernel-multicast solutions are not useful for Manet, because we do
not have this clear "incoming/outgoing" interface thing. On a MANET its
perfectly fine to forward multicast out of the same interface your got
The OpenVSwitch kernel module (without the whole daemon) looks like a
way to add custom multicast routes with MAC filters into the kernel (and
maybe even MPLS support later! *G*).
