Description

At this time, Avahi doesn't seem to like to run if the "allow-interfaces" config item contains more than 33 interfaces. I suspect this is because the interface list can get very long, and ends up getting truncated. However, it will run if you invert the selection (manual configuration) using "deny-interfaces" config item. This causes a problem with larger sites having many VLANs.

Requesting a GUI option to use the "allow-interfaces" config item (as it is today) or the "deny-interfaces" option as it was in the past. Avahi has no problem running on all interfaces when using the "deny-interfaces" config item.

Looks like Avahi fails to parse the line when the total length of the line (including "allow-interfaces=") is greater than 256 bytes.

So for this situation we'll need to have a way to specify deny interfaces instead, and allow none to be selected so it binds to all.

Implemented in Avahi pkg version 2.1.
