[Bridge] [RFC PATCH v2 net-next 01/10] net: dfwd: constrain existing users to macvlan subordinates

From: Tobias Waldekranz <tobias at waldekranz.com>

The dfwd_add/del_station NDOs are currently only used by the macvlan
subsystem to request L2 forwarding offload from lower devices. In
order add support for other types of devices (like bridges), we
constrain the current users to make sure that the subordinate
requesting the offload is in fact a macvlan.
