Thanks. That kind of worked. I created a startup script in /etc/init.d
and set it to come up just before xend with the above for two bridges.
Now on shutdown it hangs (there is nothing in the script to bring
the bridges down, it only has start.) At shutdown it says something
about xenbr0 entering disabled state. This seems like a lot of hoops
to jump through just to get another interface to bridge, especially
given that 3.0.0 did it without a problem---it just worked.

There has to be a better way, no?
