Summary: Userspace utilities for controlling VLANs on ethernet devices

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, and is slightly faster.
