This commit seems make no sense, as bridge is destroyed when
br_multicast_dev_del is called.

In commit b1b9d366028f
("bridge: move bridge multicast cleanup to ndo_uninit"), Xin Long
fixed the use-after-free panic in br_multicast_group_expired by
moving br_multicast_dev_del to ndo_uninit. However, that patch is
not applied to 4.4.X, and the bug exists.

Fix that bug by disabling multicast in br_multicast_dev_del for
4.4.X, and there is no harm for other branches.
