net/mlx5e: Switchdev representors are not vlan challenged
Before this patch, mlx5 representors advertised the NETIF_F_VLAN_CHALLENGED bit, this could lead to missing features when using reps with vxlan/bridge and maybe other virtual interfaces, when such interfaces inherit this bit and block vlan usage in their topology. Example: $ip link add dev bridge type bridge # add representor interface to the bridge $ip link set dev pf0hpf master $ip link add link bridge name vlan10 type vlan id 10 protocol 802.1q Error: 8021q: VLANs not supported on device. Reps are perfectly capable of handling vlan traffic, although they don't implement vlan_{add,kill}_vid ndos, hence, remove NETIF_F_VLAN_CHALLENGED advertisement.
