A packet with VLANid 0 and an 802.1p tag > 0 is legal. I
   think its known as a "priority tagged" packet (not 100% sure
   about the term). Therefore VLANid 0 MUST be accepted and ability to send
   it should be there.

Great, I stand corrected, please send me a patch which therefore
accepts VID 0 on create and destroy.

It already accepts on create, you just need to add the patch that
was already sent to allow for delete.


   BTW, what about VLANid 0xFFF?

I think it is reserved, but my spec is 3 years old, and I don't know
where it is right now, so whatever it is now, let's not touch it :)


Your guess is as good as mine ;-)
