            Bug ID: 209581
           Summary: igb vf driver does not correctly handle vlan tag
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.3-RELEASE
          Hardware: arm64

82599 (ixgb/ixgbe) but I check intel 82576 datasheet and the similar
flag is CTRL.VME. But the 82576 sr-iov driver guide mention the
