[VLAN]: Allow VLAN interface on top of bridge interface

When a VLAN interface is created on top of a bridge interface and 
netfilter is enabled to see the bridged packets, the packets can be 
corrupted when passing through the netfilter code. This is caused by the 
VLAN driver not setting the 'protocol' and 'nh' members of the sk_buff 
structure. In general, this is no problem as the VLAN interface is mostly 
connected to a physical ethernet interface which does not use the 
'protocol' and 'nh' members. For a bridge interface, however, these 
members do matter.
