Yeah okay to have orig_dev pkt handler see its all vlan frames though we
didn't have that way until recent change but seems reasonable to have
this way now. So I'll fix fcoe by allowing frames matching to its own
device and that will exclude vlan frames on its orig_dev pkt handler.

However now each stacked vlan tag iteration would result in passing up
frame to its orig_dev pkt handler but don't know if that affects other
and anyway fcoe would be okay with that as well.
