  bridge-utils manpage contains incorrect max for portprio

Status in bridge-utils package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  1. % lsb_release -rd
  Description:	Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
  Release:	16.04

  2. % apt-cache policy bridge-utils
    Installed: 1.5-9ubuntu1

    Version table:
   *** 1.5-9ubuntu1 500
          500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages
          100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

  3.  % brtctl setportprio br0 eth1 64; echo $?

  4. # brctl setportprio br0 eth1 128 
  set port priority failed: Numerical result out of range

  The manpage (bridge-utils-interfaces) says that bridge_portprio has a
  default value of 128.  However, the default is infact 32.
  Additionally,  no value higher than 32 can be set.
