Subject: Re: [PATCH v2 net] net: Always untag vlan-tagged traffic on input.

From: Vladislav Yasevich <>
Date: Fri,  8 Aug 2014 14:42:13 -0400

> Currently the functionality to untag traffic on input resides
> as part of the vlan module and is build only when VLAN support
> is enabled in the kernel.  When VLAN is disabled, the function
> vlan_untag() turns into a stub and doesn't really untag the
> packets.  This seems to create an interesting interaction
> between VMs supporting checksum offloading and some network drivers.
> The patch attempt to fix this another way.  It moves the vlan header
> stipping code out of the vlan module and always builds it into the
> kernel network core.  This way, even if vlan is not supported on
> a virtualizatoin host, the virtual machines running on top of such
> host will still work with VLANs enabled.
