bridge: Fix br_forward crash in promiscuous mode

bridge: Fix br_forward crash in promiscuous mode

It's a linux-next kernel from 2010-03-12 on an x86 system and it
OOPs in the bridge module in br_pass_frame_up (called by
br_handle_frame_finish) because brdev cannot be dereferenced (its set to
a non-null value).

Adding some BUG_ON statements revealed that
 BR_INPUT_SKB_CB(skb)->brdev == br-dev
(as set in br_handle_frame_finish first)
only holds until br_forward is called.
The next call to br_pass_frame_up then fails.

Digging deeper it seems that br_forward either frees the skb or passes
it to NF_HOOK which will in turn take care of freeing the skb. The
same is holds for br_pass_frame_ip. So it seems as if two independent
skb allocations are required. As far as I can see, commit
b33084be

 ("bridge: Avoid unnecessary
clone on forward path") removed skb duplication and so likely causes
this crash. This crash does not happen on 2.6.33.

I've therefore modified br_forward the same way br_flood has been
modified so that the skb is not freed if skb0 is going to be used
and I can confirm that the attached patch resolves the issue for me.
