Bug description:

   * xenial 16.04.0 has vlan support in netcfg, however it was failing
  to propagate vlan settings to the installed system. This change fixes
  the logic to copy the settings through to the installed system
  correctly, when using ifupdown (the default case)

  [Test Case]

   * Install system with vlan configuration, e.g. boot with netcfg/vlan_id=123
   * Make sure installed system has vlan_id configured in /etc/networking/interfaces and networking comes up as expected

  [Regression Potential]

   * Medium, netcfg postinst is changed affecting all installations

  [Other Info]
   * vlan_id question is of medium priority, therefore if navigating the installer interractively, one should lower the debconf priority before configuring networking.
