[alpine-devel] [PATCH] alpine-conf: modify setup-interfaces to create simple bridges

From: Roger Pau Monne <roger.pau_at_entel.upc.edu>
Date: Thu, 29 Dec 2011 19:16:26 +0100

Modified setup-interfaces to create simple bridges (works only with
one interface per bridge). Useful when setting up a Xen system, since
interfaces need to be bridged in order for guests to have networking.
Some distributions automatically create one bridge for each interface
when Xen is installed, but I think this is too aggressive.
