Ben,

Your architecture of maintaining a device per VLAN does not scale;
(as you might have heard from your numerous attempts to change device
lookups). 
What is the specific reason that you insist on mapping a VLAN to a device?
Have you thought of using a VLAN lookup table instead? 

cheers,
jamal

I am only asking because i think that sooner than later we need to have
802.1p/q in the kernel and your current scheme is problematic. 
BTW, it seems there is another 802.1p/q project at sourceforge;
