Re-add old bridge networking support as additional networking method

Description

Hello,

in some situations (see ticket #2900 which is still unsolved) the vboxnetflt implementation seems to behave differently to the original bridged networking code. In order to allow setups as described in the ticket, I would be glad if the old bridge networking style (as it was in 2.0.6) would be available as an additional networking method (e.g. Legacy Bridged Networking).

This would solve our virtual server problems.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

You can still bridge to a tap device. Our bridged networking implementation is now very stable.
