So in the patch, the frames are already forwarded between the
mesh interfaces, so we've at least tested the case like this:

mesh0/mesh1 shared
brctl addif br-lan mesh1
brctl addif br-lan eth0

Then frames destined for mesh1/eth0 that arrive at mesh0 will be
forwarded to the other devices and vice-versa. I imagine some
frame duplication would happen if both mesh devices were in the
bridge, but I haven't tried.
