**nla is unused argument in this function.

encap passed by reference here, but caller does not make use of this,
So we can just pass pointer to encap.

__parse_vlan_from_nlattrs() is not parsing inner encap nlattr in this
case. If we move above call to parse_flow_nlattrs() to
__parse_vlan_from_nlattrs() we can fix this issue.
