I was going to respond earlier and claim this is what you should do,
but I'm not actually sure.  On a real box, this is exactly what you
would do if you wanted multiple bridges (XenServer, etc.), so I can
least give you that piece of information.  However, with network
namespaces, I'm not sure if this gives you precisely the behaviour
that mininet is looking for, so it may not work the way you expect.
