Any updates on this?
Any idea who's really to blame for that? Kernel? systemd-networkd?
Seeing exactly the same issue on CentOS 7 here with a really simple
bridge setup which looks more or less the same as the one above.
It can be worked around temporarily (until the next reboot) using
ip link set dev vmbridge promisc on
Is there a better/cleaner way to permanently work around it? Couldn't
find a way to set something like "Promisc=On" in a bridge's .netdev
Using systemd-219 from https://copr.fedoraproject.org/coprs/lnykryn/systemd/
CentOS 7 runs Kernel 3.10.0-123.el7.x86_64
