This should not silently ignore attempts to enable TSO.  I think it
should be something like:

static int vlan_ethtool_set_tso(struct net_device *dev, u32 data)
{
	if (data) {
		struct net_device *real_dev = vlan_dev_info(dev)->real_dev;

		/* Underlying device must support TSO for VLAN-tagged packets
		 * and must have TSO enabled now. */
		if (!(real_dev->vlan_features & NETIF_F_TSO))
			return -EOPNOTSUPP;
		if (!(real_dev->features & NETIF_F_TSO))
			return -EINVAL;

		dev->features |= NETIF_F_TSO;
	} else {
		dev->features &= ~NETIF_F_TSO;
	}

	return 0;
}

I think the vlan driver should also have a netdev notifier to handle
feature changes on the underlying device.
