It fails to decode the frames, obviously. But so does any other EtherType.
Florian was hinting
(https://lwn.net/ml/netdev/b52f4cdf-edcf-0757-1d6e-d4a831ec7943@gmail.com/)
at the recent pull requests submitted to tcpdump and libpcap that make
it possible to decode based on the string in
/sys/class/net/${master}/dsa/tagging. I admit I haven't actually
tested or studied those closely yet (there are more important things
to focus on ATM), but since my driver returns "8021q" in sysfs and
yours returns "edsa", I would presume tcpdump could use that
information. Anyway, since you obviously know more on this topic than
I do, please make me understand what are the real problems in spoofing
the Ethertype as a Marvell one.

Thanks,
-Vladimir
