1000 vlan interfaces will work fine. In all the stable branches (and
releases) the vlans will be in a linked list, this can be slower as the
list increases in size. In CURRENT this is now a hash list and you can
optimise it even more by defining VLAN_ARRAY which will directly
dereference the tag->ifnet.
