tg3 and r8169 both look fine, they only unregister a single VID
within kill_vid and rely on VLAN to call rx_register(NULL) when
the group is unregistered (haven't looked at the others).

As I wrote in my previous mails, they do have a part that looks
unnecessary

        tg3_full_lock(tp, 0);
        vlan_group_set_device(tp->vlgrp, vid, NULL);

        tg3_full_unlock(tp);

since the vid is also removed by the VLAN code itself and locking
doesn't seem to be necessary because the VLAN hwaccel rx helper
deals with removal races itself.
