  • Adapt search for lower interfaces when no 'lower_*' symlink exists (RHEL6)
  • Replace 'readlink -f' by 'readlink -e'
  • Use 'brctl' when 'ip link' doesn't support 'bridge' type (RHEL6)
  • Use function 'resolve' to wrap 'readlink' when it doesn't support more than 1 filename (RHEL6)

only FYI:
Basically the same adaptions are needed for older SLES versions
so that I thank you very much for this fix that keeps ReaR 2.3
also working on older SLES versions.
In particular my simple networking setup still works on SLES11
with this pull request (but I did not test SLES10).
