Description iz-rpi03 2019-06-17 12:36:47 UTC
Created attachment 205181 [details]
One line patch to set IFCAP_VLAN_MTU capability.

Do not drop the MTU from from 1500 to 1496 bytes when setting up a VLAN.
The chip is already configured for a maximum length of 1518 bytes.
See if_muge.c lines 1135ff at base r348020.

According to my tests adding IFCAP_VLAN_MTU to ifp->if_capabilities fixes this.

See also base r291953 for the same fix at the smsc(4) driver.
