Thanks for the comments Jesse. Below is an updated patch.

Michael, I'm wondering if the difference in behavior can be explained by
the presence or absence of management firmware. Can you look at the
driver sign-on messages in your syslogs for ASF[]? I'm half expecting
the 5752 to show "ASF[0]" and the 5714 to show "ASF[1]". If you see
this, and the below patch doesn't fix the problem, let me know. I have
another test I'd like you to run.

[PATCH] tg3: Use new VLAN code

This patch pivots the tg3 driver to the new VLAN infrastructure.
All references to vlgrp have been removed and all VLAN code is
unconditionally active.
