Yea, that's the case. You can test with
tools/testing/selftests/net/forwarding/bridge_vlan_aware.sh and other
bridge-related tests we have there.

Another problem is that during PORT_PRE_BRIDGE_FLAGS you pass 'flags'
and not 'mask'. This breaks mlxsw (and probably others as well) given
BR_BCAST_FLOOD is set by default.
