I'm agree with that. If I used a kernel who do not have the bridge support the create_bridge() function will failed. This is logical.

What I do not understand it's why there is absolutely no call to the create_bridge() function during my test. Even if I used a kernel who do not have bridge support, for me the call to this function must be done when I enable the tethering.

I'll enabling the bridge support in my kernel today to see if this improve my test.
