I think you
really want ((p)->flags & BR_AUTO_MASK) instead without
 == BR_AUTO_MASK.

For example if learning is off but flood is on, things work
(slowly) automatically without configuring static entries.

OTOH if flood is off but learning is on, a bunch of packets
might get dropped but eventually you might learn the
mac and then networking will start working.
