No, in this case, I am simply creating an 802.1ad vlan on top.  Since
tg3 doesn't provide ETIF_F_HW_VLAN_STAG_TX, we follow the non-accelerated

Currently the driver doesn't appear to be offer ability to disable vlan acceleration.
However, if any software devices on top of the card do not support it for some reason,
then the issue would be seen as well.
