vlan: slight optimization for vlan_do_receive()
According Joe's suggestion, maybe it'd be faster to add an unlikely to the test for PCKET_OTHERHOST, so I add it and see whether the performance could be better, although the differences is so small and negligible, but it is hard to catch that any lower device would set the skb type to PACKET_OTHERHOST, so most of time, I think it make sense to add unlikely for the test.
