But see, just rebuilding bridge-utils isn't going to be enough to get
any new kernel functionality[1]... you also going to want to get the new
release of bridge-utils.  And go through any bugs filed.

Automated rebuilds tend to hide things like this, which actually lead to
more problems down the line


[1] I don't know if there actually _is_ any in this case, but there is a
new bridge-utils upstream release from a quick look at the website.
