Subject: [PATCH] vlan: fix the bug that cannot create vlan4095

According to the 8021q standard, the VLAN id range is 1 to 4095.
But in the register_vlan_device function, the range is 1 to 4094,
because ">= VLAN_VID_MASK" is used to determine whether the id
is illegal. This will prevent the creation of the vlan4095 interface:
    $ vconfig add sit0 4095
    vconfig: ioctl error for add: Numerical result out of range

To fix this error, this patch uses ">= VLAN_N_VID" instead to
determine if the id is illegal.
