Have you verified that tl(4) _doesn't_ support vlan frames?  When
vlan(4) was first being put together, I looked at the ThunderLAN
datasheet, looked at the code and I think I may have tested it.
AFAIR, ThunderLAN chips don't have any frame size limits and rely on
the framesize information in the shared buffers - so there's nothing
the driver needs to do other than have the correct MTU.

I will check this later this week if I get the chance.
