fe02::1 seems uncommon for ICMPv6 NS messages. Would you mind
making some dumps for ~10 minutes with tcpdump on all bridge ports
and the bridge interface itself with a filter "icmp6" and uploading the
result somewhere?

Also provide a dump from "bridge mdb show dev $bridge" please (if
possible - not sure whether that's available on the ancient 2.6.32
kernel as used on RHEL6u6).

Cheers, Linus
