Hi, Willy

I reference the following 2 mainline commits. These 2 commits are based 
on the current kernel 3.x and ethtool.
If we only backport these 2 commits on kernel 2.6.x, this problem will 
not be fixed yet.

Best Regards!

     gianfar: fix bug caused by 87c288c6e9aa31720b72e2bc2d665e24e1653c3e

     commit 87c288c6e9aa31720b72e2bc2d665e24e1653c3e "gianfar: do vlan 
cleanup" has two issues:
     # permutation of rx and tx flags
     # enabling vlan tag insertion by default (this leads to unusable 
connections on some configurations)

     If VLAN insertion is requested (via ethtool) it will be set at an 
other point ...
