this is the local port of br0.
you can configure it with ifconfig.

as Ben explained, NetBSD doesn't support interface renaming.
the kernel chose the names like "tap1", which might not be clear
for us human beings.  you can examine log to find the right
interface.  or probably it might be more convenient to compare
"ovs-ofctl dump-ports-desc br0" and "ifconfig -a" to look for
the interface with the mac address.
