Yes vlan can either:

col_add_fstr(pinfo->cinfo, COL_INFO,... 
with
if tvb_length() < 4 col_add_fstr

- call ethertype or dissect_802_3 which are void but could return
TRUE/FALSE if colinfo has been updated (assuming that a sub dissector
has cleared colinfo), if not then call col_add_fstr() like ethertype do.
There's a corner case: if a sub dissector throw an exception before
clearing colinfo but it should be rare.

Have to change dissect_802_03 a little though, it must use
dissector_only() and call proto_data itself rather than calling
dissector()

Comments?
