I'm afraid my competence ends here.
IMO the problem is really the struct net_bridge_port *source argument of
fdb_insert. The behavior we want is that all is_local FDB entries are
coming from br0, and none from the brports (aka source == NULL, so the
callers that had something non-NULL for source should be deleted).
"You can't always get what you want" though.

Please expand on what you plan to do. The is_local bit is part of the
bridge UAPI, how do you plan to get rid of it?
