Is that bssid for the wlan0 or wlan0_1 interface? If the later, it needs
to be after the bss= line.
The bridge configuration parameter is per BSS, so if you want wlan0_1 to
be added to the same br0 bridge, you will need to copy that line to the
end of the file so that it applies to second BSS, too.
