I would like for bridge(4) & admsw(4) to cooperate to provide the
VLAN function.  I.e., if you create bridge0 and 'brconfig bridge0 add
admsw0 add admsw1', then admsw0 and admsw1 should add themselves to the
same VLAN.  In this way, the h/w optimization is transparent to the user,
who does not have to learn Yet Another Tool to setup networking. :-)

Wow, that is really small.  What is on your NFS image?
