When the following commands are executed:

brctl addbr br0
ifconfig br0 hw ether <addr>
rmmod bridge

The calltrace will occur:

--------------------------- cut here -------------------------------

The reason is that when the bridge dev's address is changed, the
br_fdb_change_mac_address() will add new address in fdb, but when
the bridge was removed, the address entry in the fdb did not free,
the bridge_fdb_cache still has objects when destroy the cache, Fix
this by flushing the bridge address entry when removing the bridge.

v2: according to the Toshiaki Makita and Vlad's suggestion, I only
delete the vlan0 entry, it still have a leak here if the vlan id
is other number, so I need to call fdb_delete_by_port(br, NULL, 1)
to flush all entries whose dst is NULL for the bridge.
