Hello Again,

I changed the kernel to 3.6.0 and ip traffic classification on the
interface and vlan works fine.
Unfortunately I am not able to classify
PPPoE traffic, I checked filters with offset: 16, 20, 24, 28

Is it possible to classify PPPoE traffic on the main interface as it 
was in previous kernels?
