For non-IP traffic there's no such command, if it was IP you could catch
switchdev mdb notifications, but just for a mac address you'll have to configure
the port yourself, e.g. via the ip maddr command if you don't want to put it in
promisc mode. You know that in order to not run in promisc mode you'll have to disable
port flooding and port learning, right ? Otherwise they're always put in promisc.
If you do that you could do a simple hack in your driver with the current situation:
$ bridge fdb add 01:21:6C:00:00:01 dev swpX master static
If swpX is not promisc you'll get dev_uc_add() which will call __dev_set_rx_mode()
and the notifier so you can catch that address being added to the device, traffic
for that mac will *not* be forwarded to swpX later because it's considered multicast
and unknown at that so it will be flooded to all who have the FLOOD flag and will be
sent up the bridge as well.
But this is very hacky, I'd prefer the ip maddr add command on the port where you wish
to receive that traffic, the bridge will pass it up always due to it being unknown.
