net: bridge: fdb: eliminate extra port state tests from fast-path
When commit df1c0b8468b3 ("[BRIDGE]: Packets leaking out of disabled/blocked ports.") introduced the port state tests in br_fdb_update() it was to avoid learning/refreshing from STP BPDUs, it was also used to avoid learning/refreshing from user-space with NTF_USE. Those two tests are done for every packet entering the bridge if it's learning, but for the fast-path we already have them checked in br_handle_frame() and is unnecessary to do it again. Thus push the checks to the unlikely cases and drop them from br_fdb_update(), the new nbp_state_should_learn() helper is used to determine if the port state allows br_fdb_update() to be called. The two places which need to do it manually are: - user-space add call with NTF_USE set - link-local packet learning done in __br_handle_local_finish() Signed-off-by: Nikolay Aleksandrov <nikolay@cumulusnetworks.com> Signed-off-by: David S.
