bridge: make bridge address settings sticky
Stephen Hemminger [Tue, 17 Jun 2008 23:10:06 +0000 (16:10 -0700)]
Normally, the bridge just chooses the smallest mac address as the
bridge id and mac address of bridge device. But if the administrator
has explictly set the interface address then don't change it.
