3.5.7.10 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Cong Wang <amwang@redhat.com>

commit 4a7df340ed1bac190c124c1601bfc10cde9fb4fb upstream.

vlan_vid_del() could possibly free ->vlan_info after a RCU grace
period, however, we may still refer to the freed memory area
by 'grp' pointer. Found by code inspection.

This patch moves vlan_vid_del() as behind as possible.
