So you want to assign packets to queues based on the vlan tag?
Don't you see packets for each vlan tag on a specific vlan interface
anyway, so you could use the interface as criteria to assign queues?
Or is that (those 3 bits you mention) something different from the vlan
tag? I guess I might work under the wrong assumption that dot1p == vlan
tags, if so, please correct :)
