I'm confused about the implementation. I would expect pvid field in
net_bridge_port and adding a tag if it isn't there on ingress path.
The rest would be just like without PVIDs. But here you pvid field to
net_port_vlans, and don't do anything with it in receive nor transmit
path. Does it work? What am I missing?
