[Bug 925511] Re: lxc init script should fail when it ... failed

the dnsmasq for the lxc bridge explicitly binds only lxcbr0.  So if that
fails, then your other dnsmasq has already bound all interfaces.

If /etc/init.d/lxc fails to start now, then lxcbr0 never had dhcp
before.  If you're not using lxcbr0 for your containers, then you can
simply set USE_LXC_BRIDGE="false" in /etc/default/lxc.

If do want to use lxcbr0, then you should change your other dnsmasq to
not bind all interfaces.

A third alternative, I suppose, would be that you want to use lxcbr0 but
your statically assign addresses to your containers.  We could add a
USE_LXC_BRIDGE_DNSMASQ variable to /etc/default/lxc to support that use
case.  If that is what you want, please open a new bug against lxc and
I'll add it.
