Bug Description

SRU Justification:

Impact: Calxeda xgmac must learn secondary mac addresses such as those
behind a bridge in order to properly receive packets with those mac
addresses.

Fix: apply the attached patch and recompile a kernel

Test: add a patched and an unpatched instances to a bridge and then do

"bridge fdb show"

on both of them and see the difference - on the patched instance you'll see all the mac addresses behind the bridge, while you won't see them in the unpatched one.
