If I understand this correct, you are effectively setting up more than
one interface into something like a switch on the NetBSD host, and
attaching them both to another switch (or switches) and letting
spanning tree figure out the path?

If so, where do you set the IP address(es)? Is there some virtual
layer for a single IP address?

Maybe I missed something simple...
