net/filter-mirror.c: Add new option to enable vnet support for filter-redirector

We add the vnet_hdr_support option for filter-redirector, default is disabled.
If you use virtio-net-pci net driver or other driver needs vnet_hdr, please enable it.
Because colo-compare or other modules needs the vnet_hdr_len to parse
packet, we add this new option send the len to others.
You can use it for example:
-object filter-redirector,id=r0,netdev=hn0,queue=tx,outdev=red0,vnet_hdr_support

Create a filter-redirector we need to differ outdev id from indev id, id can not
be the same. we can just use indev or outdev, but at least one of indev or outdev
need to be specified.
