This patch simplifies the code for openvswitch and potential other vlan 
code and drivers. There are at least two valid ether types for vlans and 
this code simplifies the openvswitch kernel module by simplifying code 
that checks for the presence of vlans. Do you want me to annotate the 
commit with additional description?
