IGMP snooping: set mrouters_only flag for IPv6 traffic properly
Upon reception of a MGM report packet the kernel sets the mrouters_only flag in a skb that is a clone of the original skb, which means that the bridge loses track of MGM packets (cb buffers are tied to a specific skb and not shared) and it ends up forwading join requests to the bridge interface. This can cause unexpected membership timeouts and intermitent/permanent loss of connectivity as described in RFC 4541 [2.1.1. IGMP Forwarding Rules]: A snooping switch should forward IGMP Membership Reports only to those ports where multicast routers are attached. [...] Sending membership reports to other hosts can result, for IGMPv1 and IGMPv2, in unintentionally preventing a host from joining a specific multicast group.
