Since Stephen is bridge maintainer now I assume he might like esic from
the isic package. It can send packets with random source/destination
macaddresses.
There's a bunch of other small programs in that package as well.

Then there's testlvs and of course diffrent scriptkiddieprograms for
syn/ack/udp/fragment floods with random ip's and ports, they stress the
routingcache and conntrack a lot.
