There are some pointers, that are used in protocols/drivers/etc
in this struct. E.g. br_port, macvlan_port, ec_ptr, etc. Some of
them can be simply compile out with ifdefs, some require a bit
closer look.

Here's the summary:
Compiled out in this set with appropriate ifdef:
 * br_port
 * macvlan_port
 * dn_ptr
 * ec_ptr
 * ax25_ptr

Require a closer look:
 * atalk_ptr is shared with irda with "should we get our own 
   field?" comment;
 * ip_ptr and
 * ip6_ptr are used in headers and gcc complains when trying
   to compile net/socket.c that these fields are unreclared;
 * ieee80211_ptr is used in many wireless drivers. Need time
   to check for the config dependencies.

And add the forward declaration for br_handle_frame_hook in
include/linux/if_bridge.h

And remove a BUG_TRAP from netdev_run_todo as well.

Such ifdefs are troublesome, because one can compile kernel with
CONFIG_BRIDGE=n and later decide he needs BRIDGE=m and go boom.

IPv6 -- the biggest violator of this rule should not be taken as
example. :^)

You will have to recompile the whole kernel when this config
is on. Look at netif_receive_skb() ;)

Depending on CFG80211 should be fine, if not that's a bug elsewhere.
