    ixgbe: add setlink, getlink support to ixgbe and ixgbevf · 815cccbf

    This adds support for the net device ops to manage the embedded
    hardware bridge on ixgbe devices. With this patch the bridge
    mode can be toggled between VEB and VEPA to support stacking
    macvlan devices or using the embedded switch without any SW
    component in 802.1Qbg/br environments.
    Additionally, this adds source address pruning to the ixgbevf
    driver to prune any frames sent back from a reflective relay on
    the switch. This is required because the existing hardware does
    not support this. Without it frames get pushed into the stack
    with its own src mac which is invalid per 802.1Qbg VEPA
