Thanks, Ben:
I think VLAN splinters are needed for the buggy network drivers, and i 
find ixgbe 
is one among them. suppose network driver is buggy, and VLAN splinters are 
on the nics, i think ovs should not deals with those vlan devices which 
real devices
are not in ovs bridge, what do you think ? 

Best regards,

Linux 3.3 and later should not need VLAN splinters.
