Ok, I see how this happened.  The code here first came from

commit 9b22ea560957de1484e6b3e8538f7eef202e3596
    net: fix packet socket delivery in rx irq handler

And back then vlan_hwaccel_do_receive() returned "-1" and freed the
packet if cb->dev was NULL.

Herbert then added the GRO containers in:

commit e1c096e251e52773afeffbbcb74d0a072be47ea3
    vlan: Add GRO interfaces

where skb->dev now stores what cb->dev used to, and the "-1"
return and cb->dev check were thus removed.

Anyways, with how things stand now this patch looks fine and
I'll apply it to net-next-2.6, thanks!
