I looked quickly at the e1000e driver.  There is a bug in the driver
that affects the way that vlans are handled in Open vSwitch.  Open
vSwitch behaves differently on 2.6.35 compared to 2.6.38, which
explains the differences you are seeing.  The solution is to fix the
driver as it prevents tags from being inserted properly.
