[pve-devel] report on bridge tests

Setting up those vlans on the host is a mess. I wonder if we can go another way.

Seems the 'e1000' and 'virtio-net' qemu driver supports vlans. 
Can't we simply force VLAN tagging/filtering there?

Looking at the code in qemu-kvm/hw/virtio-net.c or qemu-kvm/hw/e1000.c, that 
seems to be easy to implement, and does not seem to have any performance impact.

Or is that a bad idea?
