Sorry it's taken a while, but VLAN support is finally merged.  I made some 
changes to the networking core and substantially rewrote the patch, in order 
to be able to handle cases such as a PXE boot from a VLAN device (with the PXE 
caller expecting to be able to use the UNDI API and not itself being aware of 
the presence of the VLAN header).

You can try it out by enabling VLAN_CMD in config/general.h and using e.g.

  vcreate --tag 123 net0
  dhcp net0.123

Thanks to michael-dev at fami-braun.de for providing the ideas upon which this 
patch is based, and for writing the original implementation.
