vlan: don't deliver frames for unknown vlans to protocols
6a32e4f made the vlan code skip marking vlan-tagged frames for not locally configured vlans as PACKET_OTHERHOST if there was an rx_handler, as the rx_handler could cause the frame to be received on a different (virtual) vlan-capable interface where that vlan might be configured. As rx_handlers do not necessarily return RX_HANDLER_ANOTHER, this could cause frames for unknown vlans to be delivered to the protocol stack as if they had been received untagged. For example, if an ipv6 router advertisement that's tagged for a locally not configured vlan is received on an interface with macvlan interfaces attached, macvlan's rx_handler returns RX_HANDLER_PASS after delivering the frame to the macvlan interfaces, which caused it to be passed to the protocol stack, leading to ipv6 addresses for the announced prefix being configured even though those are completely unusable on the underlying interface. The fix moves marking as PACKET_OTHERHOST after the rx_handler so the rx_handler, if there is one, sees the frame unchanged, but afterwards, before the frame is delivered to the protocol stack, it gets marked whether there is an rx_handler or not.
