Actually it will still work with vif-bridge with the vswitch brctl 
compatibility layer, but pre-creating the ports and doing it that way is a bit 
neater. I still created a vif-dummy script as it doesn't like having no script.

It does work for all the other ports (br-lan, br-wan, etc). Maybe I need an 
extra udev rule or something for the vif interfaces.
