    net: Remove vlan metadata on pcp / vlan encapsulation
    For oubound traffic, the flag M_VLANTAG is set in mbuf packet header to
    indicate the underlaying interface do hardware VLAN tag insertion if
    capable, otherwise the net stack will do 802.1Q encapsulation instead.
    Commit 868aabb4708d introduced per-flow priority which set the priority ID
    in the mbuf packet header. There's a corner case that when the driver is
    disabled to do hardware VLAN tag insertion, and the net stack do 802.1Q
    encapsulation, then it will result double tagged packets if the driver do
    not check the enabled capability (hardware VLAN tag insertion).
    Unfortunately some drivers, currently known cxgbe(4) re(4) ure(4) igc(4)
    and vmx(4), have this issue. From a quick review for other interface
    drivers I believe a lot more drivers have the same issue. It makes more
    sense to fix in net stack than to try to change every single driver.
