Please try to avoid #ifdef's like this in C code. Add a stub function
to br_private_mrp.h.

If you really cannot avoid #ifdef, please use #if IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_BRIDGE_MRP).
That expands to

	if (0) {

        }

So the compiler will compile it and then optimize it out. That gives
us added benefit of build testing, we don't suddenly find the code no
longer compiles when we enable the option.

It should always be safe to include a header file.
