macvlan: implement bridge, VEPA and private mode
This allows each macvlan slave device to be in one of three modes, depending on the use case: MACVLAN_PRIVATE: The device never communicates with any other device on the same upper_dev. This even includes frames coming back from a reflective relay, where supported by the adjacent bridge. MACVLAN_VEPA: The new Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (VEPA) mode, we assume that the adjacent bridge returns all frames where both source and destination are local to the macvlan port, i.e. the bridge is set up as a reflective relay. Broadcast frames coming in from the upper_dev get flooded to all macvlan interfaces in VEPA mode. We never deliver any frames locally. MACVLAN_BRIDGE: We provide the behavior of a simple bridge between different macvlan interfaces on the same port. Frames from one interface to another one get delivered directly and are not sent out externally. Broadcast frames get flooded to all other bridge ports and to the external interface, but when they come back from a reflective relay, we don't deliver them again. Since we know all the MAC addresses, the macvlan bridge mode does not require learning or STP like the bridge module does. Based on an earlier patch "macvlan: Reflect macvlan packets meant for other macvlan devices" by Eric Biederman.
