8021q: fix a potential use-after-free
vlan_vid_del() could possibly free ->vlan_info after a RCU grace period, however, we may still refer to the freed memory area by 'grp' pointer. Found by code inspection. This patch moves vlan_vid_del() as behind as possible. Cc: Patrick McHardy <kaber@trash.net> Cc: "David S.
