[Bridge] Lowering CPU utilisation

Hi All, 
 I have a box with 12 bridges on it, each of which has 2 ports.
When the traffic level on the box reaches around 15-20Mbps on each
bridge, my CPU utilisation gets to about 90-95%.
I would like to avoid working the CPU that hard. Is there anything which
can be done to get the CPU utlilisation down a bit? I have plans for an
even bigger bridge, but these results indicate that it may not scale
quite that well.
