    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.
    I don't want to bore you, but there's nobody else around for me to bore.
