Transferring IP addresses is not enough - if there is a dhclient
running for eth0 on the host, there is no way to change it to be
running for br0 transparently. So all we get is a seemingly well
working system - until the dhclient renews the lease.

The only solution to these kind of issues globally that I'd see, would
be the possibility to have packets come "up" from the eth0 interface,
instead of the br0 interface - which would need to be somehow
