> I'm not sure if NETDEV_CHANGE is actually propagated when the vlan changes flags. The two functions in the bridge module that handle NETDEV_CHANGE are br_vlan_port_event  and br_vlan_bridge_event. I've installed probes for both, and when I'm changing flags using "sudo ip link set vlan10 type vlan bridge_binding on", I don't see any of those functions getting called, although I do see vlan_dev_change_flags getting called. I think there may be a bug in core/dev.c:__dev_notify_flags.

are both vlan and bridge interfaces up?
what exactly are you probing for?

I can see the NETDEV_CHANGE event go through when changing the loose binding.
