When RSS expand, if there is no expansion happened but completion happened
because user only input next protocol field instead of item
i.e, ether type == 0x8100 instead of VLAN, an extra flow is created with
missing item in order to filter traffic strictly.

However, after [1] and [2] the rte_flow_item_eth itself is enough to
filter out VLAN traffic, the VLAN item is not needed.

This redundant flow will cause faiure in some scenarios on group 0 due
to they are the same FTE.

Fixes: fc2dd8dd492f ("ethdev: fix expand RSS flows")
Cc: stable@dpdk.org

[1]:
commit 09315fc83861 ("ethdev: add VLAN attributes to ethernet and
VLAN items")

[2]:
commit 86b59a1af671 ("net/mlx5: support VLAN matching fields")
