It was rumored that the ioctl interface for bridges is deprecated.
There is, however, one crucial gap when trying to implement brctl
without using any ioctl: AFAICS it is impossible to create a bridge via

The attached quick.. erm patch strives to fill this gap.
Some further details are at the top of the patchlet which received only
cursory testing, fwiw.

Thanks and cheers,
