> The netdev->dev_addr MAC filter already exists in the MAC/VLAN hash
> table, as it is added when we configure the netdev in
> i40e_configure_netdev. Because we already know that this address will be
> updated in the hash_for_each loops, we do not need to handle it specially.
> This removes duplicate code and simplifies the i40e_vsi_add_vlan and
> i40e_vsi_kill_vlan functions.
> Because we know these filters must be part of the MAC/VLAN hash table,
> this should not have any functional impact on what filters are included and is
> merely a code simplification.

> Testing-hints:
>   Ensure that adding and removing VLANs correctly updates the filters
