Package: bridge-utils
Version: 1.5-9
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

After updating my system recently I noticed that sysctl.conf is being
silently ignored. I am using the machine for KVM with libvirt and I have 

net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-ip6tables = 0
net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-iptables = 0
net.bridge.bridge-nf-call-arptables = 0

On reboot, these are not applied. Restarting the systemd-sysctl service
works and applies the values above, so I'm assuming it is some kind of
race condition.  Similar to what was seen here...

In that case since the calls to systemd-sysctl were happening before the
bridge module had been inserted so were having no effect and the
defaults were being applied when it was inserted.

I don't know why I didn't get this bug before, sorry.

The thing here is that bridge-utils doesn't have anything to do with this,
as it is not the one that sets the sysctl values, sorry.
