> On initialization failure we have to delete the local fdb which was
> inserted due to the default pvid creation. This problem has been present
> since the inception of default_pvid. Note that currently there are 2 cases:
> 1) in br_dev_init() when br_multicast_init() fails
> 2) if register_netdevice() fails after calling ndo_init()
> This patch takes care of both since br_vlan_flush() is called on both
> occasions. Also the new fdb delete would be a no-op on normal bridge
> device destruction since the local fdb would've been already flushed by
> br_dev_delete(). This is not an issue for ports since nbp_vlan_init() is
> called last when adding a port thus nothing can fail after it.

Applied and queued up for -stable, thank you.
