	Ethernet adapter: Surecom Technology EP-320G-TX
	Driver nge.

	nge driver reports vlan_id in swapped byteorder. Of course
	problem may be somewhere else.

	For example with vlan_id 121 I've got vlan_id 2304 = (121*256) & 0x0fff;

	Will FreeBSD team support nge driver in future or it's abandoned now?

	Need a lot of equipment.
	Simplest way tcpdump -n -i nge0 vlan on port with vlan encapsulation
	with known vlan ids.

	May be it's a time to buy another gigabit card :(
