Ugh my bad, Dave please don't apply this version, there're still a few rough
edges we need to take care of. Now that bridge's vlan_group can be used in these
functions the vlans should be checked for context-only, i.e. br_vlan_should_use()
and also when a port vlan is deleted its fdb entries are flushed, but that is not
done for the bridge since it wasn't possible to add them like this. So v3 coming
soon to your neighborhood! :-)
