Sorry for the noise, I forgot clean ALL ip address on pNics like this:

/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-br br0
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-port br0 eth0

/sbin/ifconfig br0 netmask up
/sbin/ip address flush dev eth0

But unlike br0 device, I must use uml-utilities to create tap device my self:

/usr/sbin/tunctl -t tap0
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-port br0 tap0
/sbin/ifconfig tap0 netmask up

Is this correct ?
