We are using the VLAN_TAG_PRESENT bit to detect whether the PVID is
set or not at br_get_pvid(), while we don't care about the bit in
adding/deleting the PVID, which makes it impossible to forward any
incomming untagged frame with vlan_filtering enabled.

Since vid 0 cannot be used for the PVID, we can use vid 0 to indicate
that the PVID is not set, which is slightly more efficient than using

Fix the problem by getting rid of using the VLAN_TAG_PRESENT.
