The vlan_features was zero which prevents vlan GSO packets to be transmitted to
userspace. This is suboptimal so enable this by initialize vlan_features for
tuntap.

Netperf shows better performance of guest receiving since vlan TSO works for
tuntap:

before:
netperf -H 192.168.5.4
MIGRATED TCP STREAM TEST from 0.0.0.0 (0.0.0.0) port 0 AF_INET to 192.168.5.4 ()

 87380  16384  16384    10.01    2786.67

after:
netperf -H 192.168.5.4
MIGRATED TCP STREAM TEST from 0.0.0.0 (0.0.0.0) port 0 AF_INET to 192.168.5.4 ()
