is it possible to bridge virtual devices (ie. a GRE tunnel)?

From: Chris Friesen (

I want to set up two physically separate LANs with the same network
address and logically bridge them using some kind of tunnel over an IP

I was hoping to somehow combine bridging with GRE tunnels in the kernel
to accomplish this, but I haven't been able to find out for sure if the
current kernel bridging code can handle a tunnel device as one of the
bridge elements.

Can anyone give the definitive answer for this?
