Update vlan mc and uc addresses with VID tag while propagating

It allows at end driver level to distinguish addresses belonging
to vlan devices.

+u16 vlan_dev_get_addr_vid(struct net_device *dev, const u8 *addr)

Having some kernel doc comment here would also be nice.

yes can be: vlan_dev_get_addr_vid - get vlan id the address belongs to

+ u16 vid = 0;
+ if (dev->vid_len != NET_8021Q_VID_TSIZE)
+ return vid;
+ vid = addr[dev->addr_len];
+ vid |= (addr[dev->addr_len + 1] & 0xf) << 8;

This uses knowledge of the maximum VLAN ID is 4095, which is fine, might
be a good idea to add a check on VID not exceeding the maximum VLAN ID
number instead of doing a silent truncation?

and then return -1, not sure, just because it's 0 or directly set by vlan
layer and is verified anyway. But no harm to verify even it looks like


+static void vlan_dev_align_addr_vid(struct net_device *vlan_dev)
+ struct net_device *real_dev = vlan_dev_real_dev(vlan_dev);
+ struct netdev_hw_addr *ha;
+ if (!real_dev->vid_len)
+ return;

Should not this check be moved to dev_{mc,uc}_sync? It does not seem to
me like this would scale really well across different stacked devices
(VLAN, bond, macvlan) as well as underlying drivers (cpsw, dsa, etc.).
Or maybe the check should be if vlan_dev->vid_len > real_dev->vid_len ->
error, right?

It shouldn't be part of netdev addr module, no any vlan_dev_vlan_id(vlan_dev)
should be there.

It's scaled becouse bond/team ...etc, are ethernet devices and have IVDF
enabled while configuration. Address propagation always is from leafs to
real root device, every underneeth device knows nothing about above, so
check is only in one direction.
