If this code rebinds the station to wlan0, sta->vlan_id is not properly
set. As the station is currently bound to wlan0.sta1, sta->vlan_id was
once properly set and then got cleared (sometime after ap_sta_bind_vlan
was called). Clearing sta->vlan_id does not immediately populate into
the station being bound to wlan0 - this is put into effect by

So the fix should be about setting sta->vlan_id properly.

Currently sta->vlan_id is set by ap_sta_set_vlan during 802.11 auth
(e.g. for using macaddr_acl=2), during 802.1x (RADIUS Access-Accept) and
when authenticating using PMKSA cache. These code paths also clear
sta->vlan_id for example if RADIUS Access-Accept does not include a VLAN
