The default value of all ports' PVID is 1, which is copied into the FDB
entry, even if the ports are VLAN unaware. So running `bridge fdb show`
will show entries like `dev sw0p0 vlan 1 self` even on a VLAN-unaware

Eric probably thought VID 1 is the FDB of all VLAN-unaware bridges, but
that is not true. And his patch probably cause a new issue that FDB is
inaccessible in a VLAN-**aware** bridge with PVID 1.

This series sets PVID to 0 on VLAN-unaware ports, so `bridge fdb show`
will no longer print `vlan 1` on VLAN-unaware bridges, and we don't
need special case in port_fdb_{add,del} for assisted learning.
