Subject: [PATCH net-next] net: bridge: add support for sticky fdb entries

Add support for entries which are "sticky", i.e. will not change their port
if they show up from a different one. A new ndm flag is introduced for that
purpose - NTF_STICKY. We allow to set it only to non-local entries.

Signed-off-by: Nikolay Aleksandrov <nikolay@...ulusnetworks.com>

I'll send the selftest for sticky with the iproute2 patch if this one is
accepted. We've had multiple requests to support such flag and now it's
also needed for some eVPN and clag setups.
