[OpenWrt-Devel] Does anyone use kmod-trelay? Is it better than relayd?

It should be a "a trivial ethernet relay which allows pseudo-bridging 
ad-hoc or client mode devices over vlans to other host"

according to the commit message


and the description is


trelay relays ethernet packets between two devices (similar to a 
bridge), but
without any MAC address checks. This makes it possible to bridge client mode
or ad-hoc mode wifi devices to ethernet VLANs, assuming the remote end uses
the same source MAC address as the device that packets are supposed to exit


It seems it will mirror packets between 2 network devices as specified 
in /etc/config/trelay

config trelay
     option enabled    0
     option dev1    eth0
     option dev2    wlan0

Does anyone have experience with it? Is it better than relayd?
