Turning on  L2 Switch

Anyone have tried the L2 Switch feature of I.MX287 ? I enabled this feature in kernel config and booted my EVK with this kernel. As documented, i.MX28EVK uses only ENET0 port to send and receive frames (eth0, switch port 0). However, I was expecting that ENET1 had a "switch behavior", I mean, that it was possible to send datagrams between switch ports 1 and 2 (datagrams coming from ENET1 and addressed to other MACs). I am wondering how to use the port mirror features as well.

Any tips ? Or am I thinking wrong about this L2 feature ?
