cxgb4: offload VLAN flows regardless of VLAN ethtype [Linux 5.2]

This Linux kernel change "cxgb4: offload VLAN flows regardless of VLAN ethtype" is included in the Linux 5.2 release. This change is authored by Raju Rangoju <rajur [at]> on Thu May 23 20:41:44 2019 +0530. The commit for this change in Linux stable tree is b573006 (patch).

cxgb4: offload VLAN flows regardless of VLAN ethtype

VLAN flows never get offloaded unless ivlan_vld is set in filter spec.
It's not compulsory for vlan_ethtype to be set.

So, always enable ivlan_vld bit for offloading VLAN flows regardless of
vlan_ethtype is set or not.
