The following works correctly for me:
#define br_auto_port(p) !!((p)->flags & BR_AUTO_MASK)

Small test shows:

printf("%d\n", br_auto_port(0x20);
1 <-- correct.  learning is set.

printf("%d\n", br_auto_port(0x40);
1 <-- correct.  flooding is set.

printf("%d\n", br_auto_port(0x60);
1 <-- correct, both are set.

printf("%d\n", br_auto_port(0x08);
0 <-- correct.  neither are set.
