[P4-dev] Questions concerning BMv2

Dear p4-devs, 

I have two questions concerning BMv2: 

    1. What types of interfaces can be used with BMv2? I already asked this on BMv2-GitHub, but no one had any experience on this question. I already experimented by passing an VCAN-interfaces to the simple-switch -i argument and this succeeded. Nevertheless, is it possible to pass any kind of interface-type within the Linux-kernel to BMv2 or are there any restriction? Is there any documentation on this topic at all, because I found none. 
    2. Is it possible to extend the number of multicast-groups beyond 16 bit? If yes: Where can I adjust this? I already tried to find evidence on this cap, but found none. 

I would be very grateful if your experience could help me resolve my questions. 

Best regards 
Michael Höflmaier
