I know that name clashes are not to be expected because one is a 
numerical id
and the other is a string, but it might still make sense to have a 
different
prefix so the user of modinfo can figure that out more easily.

Presuming that backwards compatibility is not an issue, maybe:
dsa_tag-ocelot-8021q
dsa_tag-id-20
