Sorry to bump this up, but I think I identified the issue:

Consider a VLAN-aware bridge br0, with two ports set to different PVIDs:

> bridge vlan
> port         vlan-id
> swp0         1 PVID Egress Untagged
> swp1         2 PVID Egress Untagged

When the bridge core sends a packet to swp1, the packet will be sent to
the CPU port of the switch as untagged because swp1 is set as "Egress
Untagged". However if the switch uses independent VLAN learning, the CPU
port PVID will be used to update the FDB. As we don't change its PVID
(not reasonable to change it anyway), hardware learning may not update
the correct FDB.

A possible solution is always send packets as tagged when serving a
VLAN-aware bridge.

mv88e6xxx has been using hardware learning on CPU port since commit
d82f8ab0d874 ("net: dsa: tag_dsa: offload the bridge forwarding process"),
does it have the same issue?
