[PATCH 3.13 009/149] veth: Fix vlan_features so as to be able to use stacked vlan interfaces

3.13-stable review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Toshiaki Makita <makita.toshiaki@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

[ Upstream commit 8d0d21f4053c07714802cbe8b1fe26913ec296cc ]

Even if we create a stacked vlan interface such as veth0.10.20, it sends
single tagged frames (tagged with only vid 10).
Because vlan_features of a veth interface has the
NETIF_F_HW_VLAN_[CTAG/STAG]_TX bits, veth0.10 also has that feature, so
dev_hard_start_xmit(veth0.10) doesn't call __vlan_put_tag() and
vlan_dev_hard_start_xmit(veth0.10) overwrites vlan_tci.
This prevents us from using a combination of 802.1ad and 802.1Q
in containers, etc.
