Thank you for your explanation.  I'm aware of loosing most advantages,
but it gives me the possibility to use different MTUs with one
switch/bridge.


I'll try to provide more info about the panic this week.  Like discussed
offlist, the panic happend on a machine with the mentioned fix (latest
stable).
Perhaps this panic can be fixed, especialy for the vlan children.
Otoh., I guess it's NIC (igb) related and em/igb overhaul will hit
stable/11 eventually.  And afaik, theres no native netmap support
anymore :-(
So probably resources are better spent on that instead of fixing a panic
which doesn't seem to affect anyone else than me.

Thanks,
