if I attach eth0 and eth1 to bond0(let say) and if I try to create a brid=
ge interface using brctl br0(let say)
if I want to add an interface eth0 to br0, what will happen?
concept-wise should it be possible or report an error?
please explain this

I would guess (and hope) that a slaved interface would scream if another
driver tried to use it. Maybe I don't understand what you are asking,
but doesn't this seem like you are trying to have a single physical
interface claim to have multiple physical (MAC) addresses?
