Ya, I was kind of curious of that myself. Is this because the driver
wants to support standalone VLANs using 802.1q module and vconfig, as
well as bridge vlans?  With the vlan support built into the bridge,
I've been working under the assumption that 802.1q module (and
vconfig) aren't needed, and vlans for a bridged and non-bridge port
can be managed using the "bridge" iproute2 cmd.

I had to look back at my commit 7f109539 to remind myself about the
vid_add/kill ndos and bridge_{get,set}link usage.   Maybe that
write-up helps?  I'm not following you on the ndo_fdb_add/del part of
your question.
