I don't know how many cards won't support VLAN nowadays. But i will test
these changes with my third party driver (just recompile it against pre-2.4.19)
and report the results.

This will tell us exactly nothing. It will continue to tell us
nothing until I make the change whereby NETIF_F_VLAN_CHALLENGED is set
by default and devices known to work are updated to clear it.

Please don't bother posting the results, we know what will happen.
