But it should be also possible to do that with CTs and their veth
devices, they can be untagged and act like a trunk interface (and they
can to that on one or both side of the veth peers).

I found this article which seems to explain the thematic quite well,
at least after skimming over it ;-)

I applied the increase to the CT NIC limit nonetheless, as it makes
sense to have it in sync with VMs. But this use case shouldn't need
that increase...
