Why not a general version in net_device.h or etherdevice.h?

static inline bool is_etherdev_addr(const struct net_device *dev, const unsigned char addr[ETH_ALEN])

Forwarding database is hot path, people sometimes run lots of devices
on single bridge, doesn't this scale worse?

You added another layer of locking on the already hot bridge
fast path.
