e100 parts don't support vlan offload but they generally do
allow use of vlans in higher software layers via the 8021q module.
That said, there are a couple of really old revisions of e100
hardware that don't even allow the longer frame sizes
required for vlan use with standard MTU.

Use the VLAN_CHALLENGED flag to prevent vlan binding to these
