net offloading: Generalize netif_get_vlan_features().

netif_get_vlan_features() is currently only used by netif_needs_gso(),
so it only concerns itself with GSO features.  However, several other
places also should take into account the contents of the packet when
deciding whether to offload to hardware.  This generalizes the function
to return features about all of the various forms of offloading.  Since
offloads tend to be linked together, this avoids duplicating the logic
in each location (i.e. the scatter/gather code also needs the checksum
