Shouldn't you consume the 'skb' in case "not allowed"? the 'out' label
doesn't take care of that.

Rethinking this, after discussed at [1].
The above means the port having no vlans is actually a member of every
possible vlan.
IMO it might not be what users expect, and may complicate things.

Maybe we should adapt a simpler approach:
If the bridge is a vlan enabled bridge, and the port is not a member of
the given vid, drop.
If the bridge is "vlan disabled", then all packets are permitted.
