Thanks for the explanation,

Have few more questions below,

1. What is usually the bug in the buggy driver? How can using vlan-splinter
avoid that? I'm a bit confused here, since the "vlandev.c" code still talks
to linux device driver (e.g. when creating ADD_VLAN_CMD) via the "ioctl"
call.

2. If vlan-splinter is not used,  the vswitchd will learn the vlan
configuration from the packets and record them in the learning table. right?

Kind Regards,
Alex Wang,
