I'm wondering about this requirement:

before you connect a physical interface to a bridge, remember to reset
it's mac and turn arp off. For example:

# ip link set eth1 down
# ip link set eth1 mac fe:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff arp off
# brctl addif br1 eth1
# ip link set eth1 up

NOARP does not seem to be set by default (netrwork-bridge) on eth0. Is
there a reason for this?
