Subject: problem with tagged/untagged vlan and bridging

Hi all,

Last Thursday I bought a wireless access point with multi-ssid (D-Link DWL 
2100AP). Management of the AP and RADIUS stuff is done without VLAN tags, the 
first SSID is also without tags. The other SSIDs have VLAN IDs configurable.

My first SSID is quasi-disabled by having the RADIUS always reject access 
requests, a second uses VLAN 3.

The access point is connected to my Xen machine on dev hme2. The VLAN 
subdevice hme2.3 is enslaved to br_3, the main device hme2 to br_4.

Wireshark is showing that packets coming in to hme2 with VLAN 3 go to br_4 
with VLAN tags instead of hme2.3 and then br_3. When I remove hme2 from br_4 
everything works the way I expect it to, but the AP has no connection to the 
RADIUS (on vif4.0) anymore.

I expect the VLAN subdevices to grab their packets from the master first and 
leave the rest for the bridge.

Am I doing anything wrong or is this a bug?

I use with the sunhme vlan patch[1] because of complications with 
Xen. "git log v2.6.16..HEAD -- net/8021q/ net/bridge/" does not appear to 
show anyhing that might have fixed it.

Some config info is attached. Ask for more if you need it.

Thanks in advance
