This is a minor context improvement which chooses the proper multicast
context when adding user mdb entries or host-joined entries (pointing to
the bridge device). Patch 01 adds a helper which chooses the proper
context when user-space is adding an mdb entry, note that it requires
the vlan to be configured on at least 1 device (port or bridge) so it
would have a multicast context. Patch 02 changes br_multicast_host_join
to take a bridge multicast context parameter which is passed down from
the respective functions, currently it is used for the timer config
value only. This set is in preparation for adding all multicast options
for vlans.
