Are you aware that there is a patch for using VLAN with tulip driver in 
the 2.4 series, which does not patch cleanly to a 2.6 driver?

The patch is available at:

I can say, that it runs stable, we have a heavy VLAN usage in our 
quadport cards (DFE 570 et al.)

First, is there any reason why that patch didn't make into the kernel 
tree? Basically it just allows frames 4 bytes larger than usual (802.1q 

Secondly could anyone make that patch apply to the 2.6.x? (This is 
beyond the scope of my skills yet :-/)
