Subject: VIA Velocity VLAN vexation

I have a machine (x86-32, 2.6.20.3) with two ethernet interfaces:
a 100M Tulip and a 1G VIA Velocity.  Both are connected to a common
VLAN-capable switch.  The eventually desired configuration is VLAN
support on the Gbit interface.

If I set the Tulip's switch port to tagged, and configure a VLAN on the
Tulip interface appropriately, packets flow as expected.

But if I try the same configuration on the Velocity interface, things
don't work.
I can see tagged ICMP pings go out, but no responses come back.
I can see ARP requests and responses on the target machine.
If I manually configure the ARP caches, I can see the pings and responses
on the target machine.
If I kludge the target's ARP cache to point back to the source's Tulip
interface, I can see the ping responses on the Tulip interface.

But I don't see the ping responses on the Velocity interface.

The vlan interface name and address is the same, so it can't be
firewall rules distinguishing.

I have tried various ping sizes from 0 to 1472.


Is this likely to be a problem with the via-velocity driver?
Is anyone working on it?  Or should I just get a different gigabit card?

Thanks for any advice!
