Bug Description

1. % lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Release: 16.04

2. % apt-cache policy bridge-utils
  Installed: 1.5-9ubuntu1
  Candidate: 1.5-9ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 1.5-9ubuntu1 500
        500 xenial/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

3. % brtctl setportprio br0 eth1 64; echo $?

4. # brctl setportprio br0 eth1 128
set port priority failed: Numerical result out of range

The manpage (bridge-utils-interfaces) says that bridge_portprio has a default value of 128. However, the default is infact 32. Additionally, no value higher than 32 can be set.
