I don't think it is. tcpdump will match on this EtherType and decode
what follows as an EDSA header, just in the same way it matches a
ETH_P_IP and decodes what comes next as an IP packet. I also have
wireshark patches, which i never submitted, which do the same.

Please run tcpdump on the master interface with your test system and
see what it does.
