We've been using CARP on both virtual and physical NICs for almost two
years. I haven't seen anything directly related to VLANs, but rather on
CARP. We're using re, em, xl, bge, sk and even the dc drivers - as both
vlandev and vanilla.
Here's one of the PRs (there are a couple, but I think they're all
referring to the same bug)
The patch committed doesn't fix the problem on my end, though.
As long as you don't touch the CARPs once they're up you're ok. For a
never-changing network that we're running, that's ok. Besides, we have
two CARP-machines, so if one hits the panic, the other does the job very
