net: Introduce ndo_get_port_parent_id()
In preparation for getting rid of switchdev_ops, create a dedicated NDO operation for getting the port's parent identifier. There are essentially two classes of drivers that need to implement getting the port's parent ID which are VF/PF drivers with a built-in switch, and pure switchdev drivers such as mlxsw, ocelot, dsa etc. We introduce a helper function: dev_get_port_parent_id() which supports recursion into the lower devices to obtain the first port's parent ID. Convert the bridge, core and ipv4 multicast routing code to check for such ndo_get_port_parent_id() and call the helper function when valid before falling back to switchdev_port_attr_get(). This will allow us to convert all relevant drivers in one go instead of having to implement both switchdev_port_attr_get() and ndo_get_port_parent_id() operations, then get rid of switchdev_port_attr_get().
