Hmm, I don't think there's a lot of value in having it, it's confusing
to have such a layered call stack, and it shouldn't be an exported
symbol any longer in any case.
Also, I already have a patch that calls vlan_vid_add(master) and having
this dsa_port_vid_add() helper doesn't save much at all.

Thanks,
