Extend the 'bridge mdb' command for the following syntax:
bridge mdb add dev br0 port swp0 grp 01:02:03:04:05:06 permanent

Changes in v3:
- Using rt_addr_n2a_r instead of inet_ntop/ll_addr_n2a directly.
- Updated the bridge manpage.

Changes in v2:
- Removed the const void casts.
- Removed MDB_FLAGS_L2 from the UAPI to be in sync with the latest
  kernel patch:
