Subject: [PATCH net-next v4 1/2] bridge: remove mode 'swdev'

From: Roopa Prabhu <roopa@...ulusnetworks.com>

swdev mode was introduced to indicate switchdev offloads
for bridging from user space. But user can
use BRIDGE_FLAGS_SELF to directly call into the
hw switch port driver today. swdev mode is not required anymore.
