This is a bug fix but targetted at net-next, and indeed it is quite
invasive as it adds new core infrastructure and converts the generic
vlan code over to using it.

Unfortunately net-next is closed.

So if you want this bug fixed in mainline you will have to come up
with a less invasive fix, and resubmit this net-next approach when the
net-next tree opens back up.

Thank you.
