[Bridge] Error while trying to setup bridge, appears to be a loop

Thanks for the feedback.  We decided to move some switches around and
change some things.  It appears that while we were testing we had our
second box, which was not configured yet, hook to the same set of
switches.  It had bridging enabled causing our loop.  When we migrated
this box to a completed isolated environment it went away.  When we
added the second it happened again as expected.  

We made the same changes to the second node and tweak out a bunch of
other stuff (to ensure that the bridge is created and destroyed during
the linux HA sequence).  All is good.
