What I would like to do is add some code into the vlan_ioctl() routine
that will make a call
to the PARENT ioctl with SETVLAN type and an argument of the tag.
By doing this both the em and igb drivers will be able to enable
hardware vlan filtering as
well, a feature we've never been able to use.
I don't think vlan filtering is needed much, since I always use VLANs
with switches that do the filtering at the port level. But it still
sounds like a good idea and I can't think why not.
