Subject: [PATCH] bridge: mrp: Fix out-of-bounds read in br_mrp_parse

The issue was reported by syzbot. When the function br_mrp_parse was
called with a valid net_bridge_port, the net_bridge was an invalid
pointer. Therefore the check br->stp_enabled could pass/fail
depending where it was pointing in memory.
The fix consists of setting the net_bridge pointer if the port is a
valid pointer.

Reported-by: syzbot+9c6f0f1f8e32223df9a4@...kaller.appspotmail.com
Fixes: 6536993371fa ("bridge: mrp: Integrate MRP into the bridge")
