This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

You can use a dummy dev as a internal bridge.

auto dummy0
iface dummy0 inet manual
re-up ifconfig $IFACE up
post-down ifconfig $IFACE down

auto xenbrdummy
iface xenbrdummy inet manual
bridge_ports dummy0
bridge_maxwait 0
bridge_stp off
