bridge: set priority of STP packets
Spanning Tree Protocol packets should have always been marked as control packets, this causes them to get queued in the high prirority FIFO. As Radia Perlman mentioned in her LCA talk, STP dies if bridge gets overloaded and can't communicate. This is a long-standing bug back to the first versions of Linux bridge.
