        Since the data type for the vlan_id is specified as an "unsigned short",
        The comparison (vlan_id < 0) will always be false due to the range of 
the data
        type.

Hi,
I hope you are the right receiver of 8021q-patches.
We are running SuSe 8.0, i.e kernel 2.4.18.

- When addding several egress-mappings we get stuck in an eternal
loop if they end up in the same hash-bucket, see vlan_dev.c.path.

- If we try to remove a vlan with VID 0, ifconfig stops working
completly.
We fixed it with vlan.c.patch.

Is there any reason to ever let someone add a VLAN of ID 0 in the first place?

Ben
