Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Due to a bug in the ixgbevf driver, the stripped VLAN information from incoming packets on the ixgbevf interface could be lost, and such packets thus did not reach a related VLAN interface. This problem has been fixed by adding the packet's VLAN information to the Socket Buffer (skb) before passing it to the network stack. As a result, the ixgbevf driver now passes the VLAN-tagged packets to the appropriate VLAN interface.
