Do you mean it's better to set vlan modify filters in a different chain, and write the filter entries with a same chain in the same VCAP TCAM?
For example:
	tc filter add dev enp0s3 protocol 802.1Q chain 11 parent ffff: prio 10 flower skip_sw vlan_id 5 action vlan modify id 10
	tc filter add dev enp0s3 protocol 802.1Q chain 22 parent ffff: prio 20 flower skip_sw src_mac 00:00:00:00:00:08 action drop
for this usage, we only need to ensure a chain corresponding to a VCAP in ocelot ace driver. I'm not sure is my understanding right?
