This potentially flushes other (valid) work on the deferred queue not
related to FDB del.

I wonder if this flush step is necessary at all?  The work we deferred
to delete the FDB entry can still happen after the port has been
removed (del_nbp).  If the port driver/device find the FDB entry, then
delete it, otherwise ignore it.
