Orin VLAN support appears to be broken


I have an Orin AGX dev board. It appears that hardware support for Ethernet is broken. Specifically egress works, but ingress does not.

I setup a simple VLAN using netplan with ID 2:

  version: 2
  renderer: networkd
      dhcp4: yes
      id: 2
      link: eth0
      dhcp4: no
      addresses : [ ]

This creates an interface with HW acceleration:

[    9.083204] nvethernet 6810000.ethernet: eth0 (HW ver: 31) created with 10 DMA channels
[   11.472843] 8021q: adding VLAN 0 to HW filter on device eth0

I observe tagged packets come out of this new eth0.2 interface, but I don’t see packets come back —

If you try to delete the VLAN, and recreate it however:

sudo ip link del eth0.2
sudo ip link add link eth0 name eth0.2 type vlan id 2

Suddenly things start working.

I notice this message in the kernel buffer:

[  659.856533] nvethernet 6810000.ethernet eth0: failed to kill vid 0081/2

This leads me to believe the new interface isn’t using hardware acceleration.

So, I think HW VLAN tagging support is broken on the RX side in the Orin drivers. Has anyone got it working?

If it helps, this is with 35.1:

uname -arn
Linux orin 5.10.104-tegra #1 SMP PREEMPT Wed Aug 10 20:17:07 PDT 2022 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux

Sorry for the late response, I will forward this issue to our internal team to do the investigation. Thanks

hi @kayccc - do you know if there was any update on this?
