Subject[PATCH 2/3] macvlan: implement VEPA and private mode
Date
This allows each macvlan slave device to be in one
of three modes, depending on the use case:

MACVLAN_MODE_PRIVATE:
The device never communicates with any other device
on the same upper_dev. This even includes frames
coming back from a reflective relay, where supported
by the adjacent bridge.

MACVLAN_MODE_VEPA:
The new Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator (VEPA) mode,
we assume that the adjacent bridge returns all frames
where both source and destination are local to the
macvlan port, i.e. the bridge is set up as a reflective
relay.
Broadcast frames coming in from the upper_dev get
flooded to all macvlan interfaces in VEPA mode.
We never deliver any frames locally.

MACVLAN_MODE_BRIDGE:
We provide the behavior of a simple bridge between
different macvlan interfaces on the same port. Frames
from one interface to another one get delivered directly
and are not sent out externally. Broadcast frames get
flooded to all other bridge ports and to the external
interface, but when they come back from a reflective
relay, we don't deliver them again.
Since we know all the MAC addresses, the macvlan bridge
mode does not require learning or STP like the bridge
module does.
