Binary package “openvswitch-brcompat” in ubuntu precise

Open vSwitch bridge compatibility support

 openvswitch-brcompat provides a way for applications that use the
 Linux bridge to gradually migrate to Open vSwitch. Programs that
 ordinarily control the Linux bridge module, such as "brctl", instead
 control the Open vSwitch kernel-based switch.
 Once this package is installed, adding BRCOMPAT=yes in
 /etc/default/openvswitch-switch enables bridge compatibility.
 Open vSwitch is a full-featured software-based Ethernet switch.
