Hi,

If I seen corectly the normal bridge flush will clear the entire FDB for
all the ports of the bridge. In this case it is require to clear FDB
entries only for the ring ports. In the next series I will add a better
description of this function and update also the implementation.

The user space doesn't know and doesn't contain a FDB. The user space
will just call the kernel(via netlink interface) to clear the FDB. And
the netlink call will eventually call this function.
