[dpdk-dev] [PATCH] net/i40e: fix VF Tx error issue

When using kernel PF + DPDK VF, if setting VLAN strip on
or off in VF side after setting VLAN for VF with ethtool in
PF side, it will case VF Tx error. The root case is that
setting VLAN for VF in kernel PF side is to set PVID, then
Rx VLAN offload is not permitted.
This patch fixes the issue by check VLAN offload capability
when setting VLAN offload.
