This one-liner adds bridge support to the Linux kernel
(CONFIG_BRIDGE=y).  It is a precondition for some xm-tests that bridge
is enabled.  Also IMHO it makes sense to configure a dom0 with bridge

PLEASE NOTE: I checked this patch with a full compilation run of
xen-unstable, rebooting in the new system and running the xm-tests.  For
me this works quite well - but I'm not able to see the full extend of
this patch... 

Kind regards

Andreas Florath
