Hey Ben,

I'm learning vlan while reviewing this patch. Want to ask a question
unrelated to this patch but vlan.


I saw the AF_INET is used when creating the socket (to be used in
"ioctl(sock, SIOCSIFVLAN, via)"). Seems to me that we cannot use netlink
socket here, right? And, generally speaking, is that true that we can only
use AF_INET, to talk to any network device driver in kernel?


Kind Regards,
Alex Wang,
