That doesn't do what you described. That's just regular bridging, to
connect two links into a single subnet. FreeBSD can do that quite
well (there's a whole chapter titled "bridging" in the FreeBSD
Handbook), but it doesn't have anything to do with load balancing
across the two links, which is what you said you were after.
