Subject: [PATCH iproute2] bridge: make mcast_flood description consistent

This patch simply changes the description of the mcast_flood flag
with "flood" instead of "be flooded with" to avoid confusion, and be
consistent with the description of the flooding flag, which "Controls
whether a given port will *flood* unicast traffic for which there is
no FDB entry."

 .BI group_fwd_mask " MASK "
 - set the group forward mask. This is the bitmask that is applied to decide whether to forward incoming frames destined to link-local addresses, ie addresses of the form 01:80:C2:00:00:0X (defaults to 0, ie the bridge does not forward any link-local frames coming on this port).
