I am able see other interfaces into /proc/net/dev but brctl is not showing more then 32. It is also not allowing any operations (add/del) over those interfaces. Is it correct behaviour or I have do some changes in some settings.

2.6.15 is old, so I could well be wrong, but as I remember:
The old interface (via ioctl) only had room for 32 bridges, so probably that
was it. When interface changed to sysfs that was addressed.
