DHCPd is broken because it uses the BSD (like?) packet filters, at least in
it's default compilation. I don't think we should break, or overly complicate
the kernel to work around one user-space implementation... (I know of no other
program that doesn't work with non-coppied VLAN skbs, though they may exist.)
