Bridge network device does not supports broadcast packets, however man page mentioned it does.
BROADCAST flag is not specified in interface flags and broadcast packets does not send (nmblookup failing to lookup even self on bridge interface).
ifconfig bridge0 create
Will try to solve in kernel sources soon
