Bridge spi-ethernet

I have installed bridge-utils-1.5,  on i.MX287 and L2.6.35_10.12.01but I have encountered a problem with my bridge between spi and ethernet. I executed:

  brctl addbr br0 &&

  brctl addif br0 spi0 &&

  brctl addif br0 eth0 &&

  brctl setfd br0 0 &&

  ifconfig br0 inet &&

  ifconfig br0 up &&

  ifconfig eth0 up

, and the system said "brctl: bridge br0: Package not installed".  Am I missing anything? Also, I have a driver that frames the data over Ethernet protocol, but,once the brige is set up, how do I send data via a network device? That is, how do I make the SPI device  send data? Which device should I work with: spi0, br0, eth0 and how?
