Subject: [PATCH RFC net-next 0/3] net: vlan: fix bridge binding behavior and add selftests

When bridge binding is enabled for a vlan interface, it is expected
that the link state of the vlan interface will track the subset of the
ports that are also members of the corresponding vlan, rather than
that of all ports.

Currently, this feature works as expected when a vlan interface is
created with bridge binding enabled:

  ip link add link br name vlan10 type vlan id 10 protocol 802.1q \
        bridge_binding on

However, the feature does not work when a vlan interface is created
with bridge binding disabled, and then enabled later:

  ip link add link br name vlan10 type vlan id 10 protocol 802.1q \
        bridge_binding off
  ip link set vlan10 type vlan bridge_binding on

After these two commands, the link state of the vlan interface
continues to track that of all ports, which is inconsistent and
confusing to users. This series fixes this bug and introduces two
tests for the valid behavior.
