It's not a whole lot of notification but if you passed a type argument
that is neither of the two supported value (say -1),
br_mdb_switchdev_host_port() would end its execution there, and that
would avoid the duplication altogether. I am not stuck on that idea and
can hardly think for now of why this function would change, or why the
switchdev_obj_port_mdb would change, too.
