Subject: [PATCH][ATM] br2684: Fix oops due to skb->dev being NULL

	It happens that if a packet arrives in a VC between the call to open it 
on the hardware and the call to change the backend to br2684, 
br2684_regvcc processes the packet and oopses dereferencing skb->dev 
because it is NULL before the call to br2684_push().
