This was tested on machine with
root@tp_z61m:~/src/tcpdump-4.1.1# lspci|grep Eth
02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5752M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 02)
There it works as I said.

But on

hpdl320g5:/home/ml # lspci | grep Eth
03:04.0 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5714 Gigabit Ethernet (rev a3)
03:04.1 Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5714 Gigabit Ethernet (rev a3)
the good message is that it also does not crash, but with tcpdump I see
vlan tags when no vlan devices configured on the respective eth, if so
I do not see tags anymore vlan tags on the trunk interface.

hpdl320g5:/home/ml # ifconfig -a

The same packages we saw double vlan tagged a few minutes ago now appear single vlan tagged (and of course, other packets that were shown single vlan tagged before are now shown without vlan tag / eth type 0x0800).


On the other machine:

root@tp_z61m:~# cat /proc/net/vlan/config
VLAN Dev name | VLAN ID
Name-Type: VLAN_NAME_TYPE_RAW_PLUS_VID_NO_PAD
eth0.741 | 741 | eth0

root@tp_z61m:~/src/tcpdump-4.1.1# ./tcpdump -i eth0 -n -e not port 22
