    [VLAN]: Fix MAC address handling · 8c979c26

    The VLAN MAC address handling is broken in multiple ways. When the address
    differs when setting it, the real device is put in promiscous mode twice,
    but never taken out again. Additionally it doesn't resync when the real
    device's address is changed and needlessly puts it in promiscous mode when
    the vlan device is still down.
    
    Fix by moving address handling to vlan_dev_open/vlan_dev_stop and properly
    deal with address changes in the device notifier. Also switch to
    dev_unicast_add (which needs the exact same handling).
    
    Since the set_mac_address handler is identical to the generic ethernet one
    with these changes, kill it and use ether_setup().
