Shouldn't this mask the flags out of vlandev->features first?

This should also test the NETIF_F_VLAN_TSO flag and should copy the
NETIF_F_ALL_CSUM and NETIF_F_SG flags since TSO requires those (see
register_netdevice() feature fix-up).  Peter pointed out that TX checksum
offload for VLANs might be available even without TSO; the same goes for
scatter-gather but I don't know whether it's worth adding a flag for that.
