This also looks good.

IMHO, the caller side should not assume these macros (or inline
functions) return boolean value.  There exists similar macro such as
br_port_exists() that doesn't return boolean.

Ohterwise, we should change all macros into boolean functions, but it
might affect performance a little if such a macro is used in fast path?
(I'm worried about the cost of casting non-zero values into 1.)

Thanks,
