Um, what is the etherbridge patch actually? I missed the references to

But, I'd just like to make sure - this aversion to bridging is because
of bridges getting configured wrong, people having wrong assumptions
on how they work, and bridges being a bad default choice, right? There
aren't any known actual bugs in Xen or bridge code wrt. bridging
setups, are there?

The reason is that we are/will be using bridging really extensively,
possibly soon with Xen virtual machines, although the configuration of
the bridges is going to be totally custom.
