I'm attempting to bridge several vifs in the dom0, and I am unable to access all but one of them.  I am seeing the message "received packet with own address as source address".  After looking at http://bugzilla.xensource.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=339, I realized that all the vifs in the dom0 have the same mac, and was confusing the bridging.  I tried to follow the instructions in the link to change the macs, but "ip link set <dev> addr <lladdr>" returns "RETNETLINK: Operation not supported."

Anyone have any ideas?

If it helps, I'm running Xen 4.0.0_21091_05-78.3 on OpenSuse 11.3, kernel x86_64 (kernel of the day 8/4/10).
