Virtual networking refers to the ability of switches and routers to configure logical topologies on top of the physical network infrastructure, allowing any arbitrary collection of LAN segments within a network to be combined into an autonomous user group, appearing as a single LAN. This package implement support (along with the kernel patch) : * Implements 802.1Q VLAN spec. * Can support up to 4094 VLANs per ethernet interface. * Scales well in critical paths: O(n), where n is the number of PHYSICAL ethernet interfaces, and that is only on ingress. O(1) in every other critical path, as far as I know. * Supports MULTICAST * Can change MAC address of VLAN. * Multiple naming conventions supported, and adjustable at runtime. * Optional header-reordering, to make the VLAN interface look JUST LIKE an Ethernet interface. This fixes some problems with DHCPd and anything else that uses a SOCK_PACKET socket. Default setting is off, which works for every other protocol I know about, and is slightly faster.
