We currently set the value that variable vid is pointing, which will be
used in FDB later, to 0 at br_allowed_ingress() when we receive untagged
or priority-tagged frames, even though the PVID is valid.
This leads to FDB updates in such a wrong way that they are learned with
VID 0.
Update the value to that of PVID if the PVID is applied.

Ok, but side-effects seem like an indication of poor code logic
flow design. Not your fault but part of the the per-vlan filtering code.

I'll see if I can re-work the code to get rid of the side-effects.

I'm thinking br_allowed_ingress() might have too many roles.
- Determine whether an incoming frame is acceptable.
- Update skb->vlan_tci if PVID is applied.
- Update the argument 'vid'.

Besides, 'vid' is actually updated by not br_allowed_ingress() but
br_vlan_get_tag().

I think this complicated implementation could lead to missing expected
code for updating vid.

At least we can remove the third role from br_allowed_ingress() because
the required vid is recorded in skb->vlan_tci when we exit the function.

So, we can write the caller of br_allowed_ingress() like
	...
	if (!br_allowed_ingress(br, v, skb))
		goto drop;
	vid = br_vlan_get_tag(skb);

(Assuming br_vlan_get_tag() has been changed to return vid.)

However, this will require br_vlan_get_tag() to check br->vlan_enabled.
Does this change reduce complexity of current implementation?

BTW, some codes in mdb, such as br_multicast_ipv4_rcv(), seem to call
br_vlan_get_tag() without checking br->vlan_enabled.
Is this right way?
Or does br_vlan_get_tag() originally need to check br->vlan_enabled?

Thanks,

Toshiaki Makita
