[PATCH v2 net-next 1/4] net: core: dev_addr_lists: add auxiliary func to handle reference address updates




In order to avoid all table update, and only remove or add new
address, the auxiliary function exists, named __hw_addr_sync_dev().
It allows end driver do nothing when nothing changed and add/rm when
concrete address is firstly added or lastly removed. But it doesn't
include cases when an address of real device or vlan was reused by
other vlans or vlan/macval devices.

For handaling events when address was reused/unreused the patch adds
new auxiliary routine - __hw_addr_ref_sync_dev(). It allows to do
nothing when nothing was changed and do updates only for an address
being added/reused/deleted/unreused. Thus, clone address changes for
vlans can be mirrored in the table. The function is exclusive with
__hw_addr_sync_dev(). It's responsibility of the end driver to
identify address vlan device, if it needs so.
