I'm bound to 6.3 and 7.0 at the moment. Does the vlan ioctls exist only from
7.1 and fourth?
If so, are there any kernel patches to make 6.3 / 7.0 support it as well?

My hardware works fine, I have TSO working on the regular interface. but
it seems like vlan interfaces does not inherit the parent device
