It's new. I added it in the last year or so to match the way wlan devices
are created. It also can do sane things like auto-destroy associated vlans
when a device is stopped, etc. However, I have not tested them with
/etc/netstart. They do work fine during a normal startup. I can't see
obvious reasons as to why they would fail though via /etc/netstart.
The stuff that handles vlans_<if> will auto-load if_vlan.ko if it is needed,
but perhaps that isn't working from single user mode when using /etc/netstart?
Also, do the vlans work fine if you let a box boot normally?
