I have no idea how this patch can break vlan networking.

Your disassembly and .config seems to show your machine is not SMP

Maybe something is broken on UP and alloc_percpu() ?

Could you add a debug in vlan_dev_init()

 	vlan_dev_info(dev)->vlan_rx_stats = alloc_percpu(struct vlan_rx_stats);
	if (!vlan_dev_info(dev)->vlan_rx_stats)
 	return -ENOMEM;
+	pr_err("vlan_dev_init() rx_stats=%p\n", vlan_dev_info(dev)->vlan_rx_stats);

This make sure vlan_dev_init() is called and percpu allocation is properly done.
