For my purposes, I just want it to work with NetBSD and I don't care
about compatability with other domU OSes.  Will it work to just patch
the xennet and xvif drivers to give them ETHERCAP_VLAN_MTU, or would I
need to do something more?  (Obviously, this would not be a good way
for NetBSD to go, but in this case I'm willing to go with a kludge.)
