Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: bridge-utils

$ ls -l /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/bridge 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 35 2009-07-25 08:04 /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/bridge -> /usr/share/bridge-utils/ifupdown.sh

If /usr is a separate partition (on NFS, but possibly otherwise), it
won't be mounted when the kernel initializes a network interface. In
this case, /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/bridge then becomes a dangling
symlink and the ifupdown script not run. wpasupplicant had a similar
problem and solved this by putting its if-pre-up.d file in /etc.
