Thinking about this some more, i don't see why any of these attributes 
(except loopback. I dont understand the loopback attribute)
cant be part of the birdge port attributes.

With this we will end up adding l2 attributes in two places: the general 
link attributes and bridge attributes.

And since we have gone down the path of using ndo_bridge_setlink/getlink 
with 'self'....we should stick to that for all l2 attributes.

The idea of overloading ndo_bridge_set/getlink, was to have the same set 
of attributes but support both cases where the user wants to go through 
the bridge driver or directly to the switch port driver. So, you are not 
really going through the bridge driver if you use 'self' and 
ndo_bridge_setlink/getlink.
