Alright, I think I've made some progress.
In the current code, we only use two combinations to toggle user
ports' VLAN awareness: one is PCR.PORT_VLAN set to port matrix mode
with PVC.VLAN_ATTR set to transparent port, the other is PCR.PORT_VLAN
set to security mode with PVC.VLAN_ATTR set to user port.

It turns out that only PVC.VLAN_ATTR contributes to VLAN awareness.
Port matrix mode just skips the VLAN table lookup. The reference
manual is somehow misleading when describing PORT_VLAN modes (See Page
17 of MT7531 Reference Manual, available at
http://wiki.banana-pi.org/Banana_Pi_BPI-R64#Resources). It states that
PORT_MEM (VLAN port member) is used for destination if the VLAN table
lookup hits, but actually it uses **PORT_MEM & PORT_MATRIX** (bitwise
AND of VLAN port member and port matrix) instead, which means we can
have two or more separate VLAN-aware bridges with the same PVID and
traffic won't leak between them.

So I came up with a solution: Set PORT_VLAN to fallback mode when in
VLAN-unaware mode, this way, even VLAN-unaware bridges will use
independent VLAN filtering. Then assign all standalone ports to a
reserved VLAN.
