vlan: Fix lockdep warning when vlan dev handle notification

The new function vlan_dev_get_lockdep_subkey() will return the subkey and make the vlan dev could get a suitable class key. v2->v3: According David's suggestion, I use the subclass to distinguish the lock key for vlan dev and its real dev, but it make no sense, because the difference for subclass in the lock_class_key doesn't mean that the difference class for lock_key, so I use lock_depth to distinguish the different depth for every vlan dev, the same depth of the vlan dev could have the same lock_class_key, I import the MAX_LOCK_DEPTH from the include/linux/sched.h, I think it is enough here, the lockdep should never exceed that value. v3->v4: Add a huge array of locking keys will waste static kernel memory and is not a appropriate method, we could use _nested() variants to fix the problem, calculate the depth for every vlan dev, and use the depth as the subclass for addr_lock_key.
