[ Upstream commit 59259ff7a81b9eb6213891c6451221e567f8f22f ]

There is a crash in the function br_get_link_af_size_filtered,
as the port_exists(dev) is true and the rx_handler_data of dev is NULL.
But the rx_handler_data of dev is correct saved in vmcore.

The oops looks something like:
 ...
 pc : br_get_link_af_size_filtered+0x28/0x1c8 [bridge]
 ...
 Call trace:
  br_get_link_af_size_filtered+0x28/0x1c8 [bridge]
  if_nlmsg_size+0x180/0x1b0
  rtnl_calcit.isra.12+0xf8/0x148

  el0_svc_common+0x78/0x130
  el0_svc_handler+0x38/0x78
  el0_svc+0x8/0xc

In br_add_if(), we found there is no guarantee that
assigning rx_handler_data to dev->rx_handler_data
will before setting the IFF_BRIDGE_PORT bit of priv_flags.
So there is a possible data competition:

CPU 0:                                                        CPU 1:
(RCU read lock)                                               (RTNL lock)
rtnl_calcit()                                                 br_add_slave()
  if_nlmsg_size()                                               br_add_if()
    br_get_link_af_size_filtered()                              -> netdev_rx_handler_register
                                                                    ...
                                                                    // The order is not guaranteed
      ...                                                           -> dev->priv_flags |= IFF_BRIDGE_PORT;
      // The IFF_BRIDGE_PORT bit of priv_flags has been set
      -> if (br_port_exists(dev)) {
        // The dev->rx_handler_data has NOT been assigned
        -> p = br_port_get_rcu(dev);
        ....
                                                                    -> rcu_assign_pointer(dev->rx_handler_data, rx_handler_data);
                                                                     ...

Fix it in br_get_link_af_size_filtered, using br_port_get_check_rcu() and checking the return value.
