Subject: [PATCH] bridge: forwarding table information for >256 devices

The forwarding table binary interface (my bad choice), only exposes the
port number of the first 8 bits. The bridge code was limited to 256 ports
at the time, but now the kernel supports up 1024 ports, so the upper bits
are lost when doing:
   brctl showmacs

The fix is to squeeze the extra bits into small hole left in data structure,
to maintain binary compatiablity.
