net: bridge: Mark FDB entries that were added by user as such
Externally learned entries can be added by a user or by a switch driver that is notifying the bridge driver about entries that were learned in hardware. In the first case, the entries are not marked with the 'added_by_user' flag, which causes switch drivers to ignore them and not offload them. The 'added_by_user' flag can be set on externally learned FDB entries based on the 'swdev_notify' parameter in br_fdb_external_learn_add(), which effectively means if the created / updated FDB entry was added by a user or not.
