I am also experiencing difficulties with vlan +briding +bhyve.  It
seems the host that can talk just fine out a trunked em0 interface
using vlan32 and vlan34 to all my other hardware can NOT talk to
my bhyve guests.  Those bhyve guests can also talk out that
same interface to other hardware, but they are being passed in
the trunked interface, ie direct tap of bridge of em0 and the
vlan tagging/untagging is being done inside the guest.

All the guests can talk to each other and they can all talk
to real hardware that is via the em0 hardware, same for the
host, but the host can not talk to the guests nor the guests
to the host.

My guess is that the arp's are not being seen by the bridge
cause they are wrapping in vlan tags thus the bridge
never learns all the mac addresses, but this is just a
