If i understand this correctly, VLANs 1 to max_ports are used for when
a port is not a member of a bridge. When a port is added to a bridge,
an unused vlan is allocated to the bridge.

You could however reuse the port VLANs.  When the 1st port joins a
bridge, it keeps its VLAN ID, but the bridge is associated to the
port. When the 2nd, 3rd, 4rd port joins the bridge, use the VLAN from
the 1st port.

It gets messy when ports leave. If the 1st port is not the last to
leave, you need to modify the VLAN ID to a port which is still a
member of the bridge.

What you have here is simple, but if you think VLANs are valuable,
this scheme can save you some VLANS, but at the expense of a bit of
extra code complexity.
