I see, so bonding device propagates hw VLAN support from the slaves.
If one of the slaves doesn't have it, its disabled for the bond device.
Any idea why we do that? Why not pass skbs to the slave devices
instead and let them handle the hw/sw vlan implementation?
I see the propagation was added in 278339a42a1b 10 years ago and
I don't see any rationale in the commit description.
Somebody with more context should probably chime in :-)
