Subject[PATCH 1/2] NET: Re-add VLAN tag for devices incapable of keeping it

Some MACs are configured to remove VLAN tags on RX packets even if
the kernel isn't setup to use VLANs.

On these drivers it is bad to simply pass the packets with the VLAN
tag removed to the network stack. This gives the network stack the
impression these packets arrived from the network without a VLAN tag
even though they had one. This has 2 issues: 1, PF_PACKET sockets see
the packet without the VLAN tag when bound to the base device; and 2,
the L3 stacks will process these packets as if they had no tag to
begin with.

This patch changes vlan_hwaccel_rx() and vlan_hwaccel_receive_skb() to
accept a NULL vlan group. This simplifies the drivers as they can
call vlan_hwaccel_rx()/vlan_hwaccel_receive_skb() if the MAC
has removed the VLAN tag, or netif_rx()/netif_receive_skb() if the
MAC hasn't removed a VLAN tag (or the packet arrived untagged).

If the vlan group is NULL or no device for the received VID exists,
vlan_hwaccel_rx()/vlan_hwaccel_receive_skb() will now re-add a VLAN
tag and pass the packet to the base device with tag intact.

It is still preferable for the drivers to disable VLAN tag removal in
the hardware if no vlan group is configured. However for devices that
cannot do this the change will ensure tagged packets remain tagged in
the network stack.

Note, __vlan_hwaccel_rx() needed to move below __vlan_put_tag() so the
change really isn't as big as it may look below.
