> Currently the bridge device doesn't generate any notifications upon vlan
> modifications on itself because it doesn't use the generic bridge
> notifications.
> With the recent changes we know if anything was modified in the vlan config
> thus we can generate a notification when necessary for the bridge device
> so add support to br_ifinfo_notify() similar to how other combined
> functions are done - if port is present it takes precedence, otherwise
> notify about the bridge. I've explicitly marked the locations where the
> notification should be always for the port by setting bridge to NULL.
> I've also taken the liberty to rearrange each modified function's local
> variables in reverse xmas tree as well.
