It's not.  But my guess is that the NetBSD VLAN driver, like the Linux
driver, should strip off the VLAN tag before doing anything else - for
example forwarding the packet through a bridge...  In Linux, supposedly,
there's a special option to turn this "feature" on/off.  I was hoping
NetBSD had the same thing.

So this isn't a known problem?  Is there anyone familiar with VLAN +
bridging I could contact?
