[BRIDGE]: use llc for receiving STP packets
Use LLC for the receive path of Spanning Tree Protocol packets. This allows link local multicast packets to be received by other protocols (if they care), and uses the existing LLC code to get STP packets back into bridge code. The bridge multicast address is also checked, so bridges using other link local multicast addresses are ignored. This allows for use of different multicast addresses to define separate STP domains.
