Subject: [PATCH] bridge: netlink: check vlan_default_pvid range

Currently it is allowed to set the default pvid of a bridge to a value
above VLAN_VID_MASK (0xfff). This patch checks the passed pvid and
disables the pvid in case it is out of bounds.

Reproduce by calling:

[root@...t ~]# ip l a type bridge
[root@...t ~]# ip l a type dummy
[root@...t ~]# ip l s bridge0 type bridge vlan_filtering 1
[root@...t ~]# ip l s bridge0 type bridge vlan_default_pvid 9999
[root@...t ~]# ip l s dummy0 master bridge0
[root@...t ~]# bridge vlan
port	vlan ids
bridge0	 9999 PVID Egress Untagged

dummy0	 9999 PVID Egress Untagged
