I am also using debian so changed my configuration to match this before I
was using:

auto br1
iface br1 inet static
        pre-up /sbin/ip link set eth0 up
        pre-up /sbin/ip link set eth3 up
        pre-up /sbin/vconfig add eth0 40
        pre-up /sbin/vconfig set_flag eth0.40 1
        pre-up /sbin/vconfig add eth3 40
        pre-up /sbin/vconfig set_flag eth3.40 1
        pre-up /sbin/ip link set eth0.40 up
        pre-up /sbin/ip link set eth3.40 up
        pre-up /usr/sbin/brctl addbr br1
        pre-up /usr/sbin/brctl addif br1 eth0.40
        pre-up /usr/sbin/brctl addif br1 eth3.40

Your way is alot simplet, as it appears to create the vlans as well.

I do have to use one ebtables rule, for traffic coming in on the eth3

My only issue now if how I can restrict traffic, I may end up having to find
some other way to do this...
