Yet another test in fast-path for all packets.
Since br_handle_frame will not be executed at all for such devices I'd suggest
to look into a scheme that avoid installing rx_handler and thus prevents br_handle_frame
to be called in the frist place. In case that is not possible then we can discuss adding
one more test in fast-path.

Actually you can just add a dummy rx_handler that simply returns RX_HANDLER_PASS for
these devices and keep rx_handler_data so all br_port_get_* will continue working.

Thanks,
 Nik
