[Bridge] net_bridge_port net_device NULL

I'm dealing with a strange problem and not sure if it's appearance
indicate a problem with a forwarding database or this is the case
where a custom patch is misbehaving.

Can an entry (net_bridge_fdb_entry) exist in the fdb containing
net_bridge_port (dst field) which net_device (dev) is NULL ?

This seems very strange. I went through the code and the
net_bridge_port is always created in association with a net_device.

Are there any circumstances under which the net_device of
net_bridge_port may become NULL ?

Pozdrawiam / Best Regards
