Subject: [PATCH net] bridge: Fix incorrect re-injection of LLDP packets

Commit 8626c56c8279 ("bridge: fix potential use-after-free when hook
returns QUEUE or STOLEN verdict") caused LLDP packets arriving through a
bridge port to be re-injected to the Rx path with skb->dev set to the
bridge device, but this breaks the lldpad daemon.

The lldpad daemon opens a packet socket with protocol set to ETH_P_LLDP
for any valid device on the system, which doesn't not include soft
devices such as bridge and VLAN.

Since packet sockets (ptype_base) are processed in the Rx path after the
Rx handler, LLDP packets with skb->dev set to the bridge device never
reach the lldpad daemon.

Fix this by making the bridge's Rx handler re-inject LLDP packets with
RX_HANDLER_PASS, which effectively restores the behaviour prior to the
mentioned commit.

This means netfilter will never receive LLDP packets coming through a
bridge port, as I don't see a way in which we can have okfn() consume
the packet without breaking existing behaviour. I've already carried out
a similar fix for STP packets in commit 56fae404fb2c ("bridge: Fix
incorrect re-injection of STP packets").
