8021q and change_mtu problem

I have tried to use the "change_mtu" function with a 8021q network device.
I have compare this function with an other one define for ethernet devices
in /drivers/net/net_init.c.

These functions always return -EINVAL when the new mtu value is invalid.
But for a valid mtu value the first one returns the new value and the second
one returns 0.

I use a linux 2.6.9 kernel from kernel.org.

I have tried this very simple patch and the function works fine.
