net: Make accesses to ->br_port safe for sparse RCU
The new versions of the rcu_dereference() APIs requires that any pointers passed to one of these APIs be fully defined. The ->br_port field in struct net_device points to a struct net_bridge_port, which is an incomplete type. This commit therefore changes ->br_port to be a void*, and introduces a br_port() helper function to convert the type to struct net_bridge_port, and applies this new helper function where required.
