From: Nikolay Aleksandrov <nikolay@nvidia.com>

Extend the bridge multicast control and data path to configure routes
for L2 (non-IP) multicast groups.

The uapi struct br_mdb_entry union u is extended with another variant,
interpretation, mac_addr, which does not change the structure size, and
which is valid when the MDB_FLAGS_L2 flag is found set.

To be compatible with the forwarding code that is already in place,
which acts as an IGMP/MLD snooping bridge with querier capabilities, we
need to declare that for L2 MDB entries (for which there exists no such
thing as IGMP/MLD snooping/querying), that there is always a querier.
Otherwise, these entries would be flooded to all bridge ports and not
just to those that are members of the L2 multicast group.

Needless to say, only permanent L2 multicast groups can be installed on
a bridge port.

This patch is adapted from the version that Nikolay posted here:
https://lore.kernel.org/netdev/20200708090454.zvb6o7jr2woirw3i@skbuf/

There, he marked the patch as "unfinished". I haven't made any major
modifications to it, but I've tested it and it appears to work ok,
including with offloading. Hence, I would appreciate some tips regarding
things that might be missing.

Hi,
I almost missed this one, thank you for fixing it up. I was wondering if we
can move br_ip's mac_addr in the "dst" union to save some space and reduce
ops when matching, since we're also matching on the protocol field. In general
do we need the ->l2 field at all, can we use proto == 0 ? In order to make it
more readable it can be in a helper with a descriptive name so we don't wonder
what proto == 0 meant later. A few more minor comments below.

Can we pass the flag from the caller? This kind of beats the purpose of
receiving the flags as an argument. :)

Oh, one more thing, I don't think we validate that the dst mac that's being

Never mind, I'll make it 4.

Unfortunately they haven't been in sync from the start. MDB_FLAGS bit
0 is offload, while MDB_PG_FLAGS bit 0 is permanent. As you can see
here blocked is bit 3, while internally it's 4 due to the same reason.
We can't afford to skip 1 bit since this is uAPI and we only got 8 
available bits. I wonder if we need these L2 bits at all, why not use
only proto == 0 to denote it's a L2 entry? I can't remember why I added
the bits back then, but until now proto == 0 wasn't allowed and the
kernel couldn't export it as such, so it seems possible to use it.
