Subject[PATCH net] net: dsa: Treat VLAN ID 0 as PVID untagged
VLAN ID 0 is special by all kinds and is really meant to be the default
ingress and egress untagged VLAN. We were not configuring it that way
and so we would be ingress untagged but egress tagged.

When our devices are interfaced with other link partners such as switch
devices, the results would be entirely equipment dependent. Some
switches are completely fine with accepting an egress tagged frame with
VLAN ID 0 and would send their responses untagged, so everything works,
but other devices are not so tolerant and would typically reject a VLAN
ID 0 tagged frame.

Hi all,

After looking at all DSA drivers and how they implement port_vlan_add()
I think this is the right change to do, but would appreciate if you
could test this on your respective platforms to ensure this is not

Thank you
