Subject: [BUG?] bridge_id not getting set for bridges created with


If IFLA_ADDRESS is set when creating a bridge over netlink, e.g.

# ip link add test-bridge address b6:83:a2:b3:2f:0e type bride

the bridge id is not set:

# brctl show
bridge name    bridge id        STP enabled    interfaces
bridge1        8000.000000000000    no

It looks like this is caused by br_stp_set_bridge_id never beeing
called. There appear to be many ways to solve this, but not sure what
is the preferred route...
