[Bridge] [PATCH v5 net-next 4/5] net: dsa: mv88e6xxx: map virtual bridges with forwarding offload in the PVT

The mv88e6xxx switches have the ability to receive FORWARD (data plane)
frames from the CPU port and route them according to the FDB. We can use
this to offload the forwarding process of packets sent by the software
bridge.

Because DSA supports bridge domain isolation between user ports, just
sending FORWARD frames is not enough, as they might leak the intended
broadcast domain of the bridge on behalf of which the packets are sent.

It should be noted that FORWARD frames are also (and typically) used to
forward data plane packets on DSA links in cross-chip topologies. The
FORWARD frame header contains the source port and switch ID, and
switches receiving this frame header forward the packet according to
their cross-chip port-based VLAN table (PVT).

To address the bridging domain isolation in the context of offloading
the forwarding on TX, the idea is that we can reuse the parts of the PVT
that don't have any physical switch mapped to them, one entry for each
software bridge. The switches will therefore think that behind their
upstream port lie many switches, all in fact backed up by software
bridges through tag_dsa.c, which constructs FORWARD packets with the
right switch ID corresponding to each bridge.

The mapping we use is absolutely trivial: DSA gives us a unique bridge
number, and we add the number of the physical switches in the DSA switch
tree to that, to obtain a unique virtual bridge device number to use in
the PVT.

v1->v2: keep Tobias' idea, reimplement using just dp->bridge_num instead
        of hooking a dst->priv pointer and cooking the same thing within
        mv88e6xxx, drop his authorship since patch is basically
        rewritten.
v2->v4: none
v4->v5: rename functions for naming consistency
