I read it. However it seems like the two that could apply to me are either
the native vlan on the switch. But that's set to 1 so I don't think so. The
other option is the VLAN drivers. I looked into using the ovs-vlan-test and
ovs-test tools to see if vlan is working but it looks like they both
require two servers with ovs setup to communicate with each other.

Is there a way to test vlan with my kernel without having another ovs
server? I am also able to bring up eth1.60 with an IP and communicate. I'm
not sure if that is a valid test or not.

Here is my device and driver info. Maybe someone already knows if there is
a problem.

tg3 0000:06:00.0: eth1: Tigon3 [partno(BCM95721) rev 4201] (PCI Express)
MAC address 00:1e:c9:ff:14:8d
tg3 0000:06:00.0: eth1: attached PHY is 5750 (10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet)
(WireSpeed[1], EEE[0])
tg3 0000:06:00.0: eth1: RXcsums[0] LinkChgREG[0] MIirq[0] ASF[1] TSOcap[1]
tg3 0000:06:00.0: eth1: dma_rwctrl[76180000] dma_mask[64-bit]

driver: tg3
version: 3.122
firmware-version: 5721-v3.65, ASFIPMI v6.25
bus-info: 0000:06:00.0

Thanks again!
