Yes, it seems a bit overkill. I've tried a few other configurations like
changing the mac address of the vlan interface and enabling promiscuous
mode on the ether interface, without success.
Could I get a different result by using the setenaddr/setautosrc control
capabilities of the ng_ether node associated to the vlan interface (and
enabling the promiscuous mode on the ether/vlan interfaces)?
