Bridge and VLAN code (skb_vlan_untag in __netif_receive_skb_core)
expects skb->data to point to the start of VLAN header, not the next
(network) header. After calling tcf_vlan_act() on ingress filter,
skb->data points to the next of VLAN header (network header), while
non-hwaccel VLAN packets (including double tagged ones) from NIC drivers
have skb->data pointing to the start of VLAN header as expected.

I'm not sure if mac_len should or should not be updated in
skb_vlan_push(). Anyway IIRC skb_vlan_untag() and bridge code do not
rely on mac_len so mac_len should not cause problems there.
