With this you end up checking if the patcket is tagged quite a lot of times.

What I am thinking is that once we perform a get_tag, we should get
the vlan tag that the current packet belongs to.  We can then safely
use that tag everywhere and not have to worry too much about it.

We can pass that tag to br_allowed_ingress to verify that it is
permitted to enter.

You made a valid point about multicast code using br_vlan_get_tag
incorrectly and I plan on addressing that.

As it is, the current series addresses bugs in the implementation
that should be fixed.

We can make the code better/nicer as a next step.
