Hi Jose/David Miller,

1/ In current implementation, TSN uses VLAN filter that can either accept/reject VLAN-tagged network packets. In some situation, we do not want to drop failed packets, but instead steer the packet to a VLAN Failed Queue Channel.

2/ VLAN Fail Queue Channel will be set to use the RxQ with higheset index as per HW IP configuration because that is the least priority channel.

3/ The way user will enable this feature is through promiscuous mode settings using ifconfig. (e.g. ifconfig enp0s30f4 promisc)

4/ VLAN Filter Fail Packets Queue feature is IP version specific (only applicable to DWMAC5). I would propose we add this under platform data (e.g. dwmac-intel), so that it can be built in according to hardware on a separate patch.

Any thoughts?
