The bridge code is not up to anything. It needs a major rework because the
way it goes about doing things is broken. :-(

For now, there are two options -- (a) use the bridge code that's on the
multiport card (there's at least one which does this, but don't ask me
which one...), or (b) use the card as a bunch of separate interfaces, and
route between them.

Anyway, this is really a topic for linux-net.
