[Rdo-list] neutron-openvswitch-agent resetting MAC address on my bridges



Someone reported some problems running through:

  http://openstack.redhat.com/Neutron_with_existing_external_network

I thought I would walk through it myself first to make sure that (a)
it was correct and (b) that I remembered all the steps, but I've run
into a puzzling problem:

My target system is itself an OpenStack instance, which means that
once br-ex is configured it really need to have the MAC address that
was previously exposed by eth0, because otherwise traffic will be
blocked by the MAC filtering rules attached to the instance's tap
device:

    -A neutron-openvswi-s55439d7d-a -s 10.0.0.8/32 -m mac 
      --mac-source FA:16:3E:EF:91:EC -j RETURN
    -A neutron-openvswi-s55439d7d-a -j DROP

I have set MACADDR in br-ex, which works just fine until I restart
neutron-openvswitch-agent (or, you know, reboot the instance), at
which point the MAC address on br-ex changes any everything stops
working.

I've been poking through the code for a bit and I can't find either
the source or an explanation for this behavior. It would be great if a
wiser set of eyes could shed some light on this.

Cheers,
