Wireshark-bugs: [Wireshark-bugs] [Bug 2254] Incorrect allocation/classification of "Type" fields
Date: Tue, 27 Sep 2011 17:27:56 -0700 (PDT)

Other disssectors that use the "ethertype" dissector table are:

    Apple IP-over-FireWire, but I don't know whether there are any VLANs there;

    Infiniband, but I don't know whether there are any VLANs there;

    NBMA Next Hop Resolution Protocol (RFC 2332), but I suspect there are no
VLANs there;

    DLT_NULL, but there are definitely no VLANs there;

    RTnet - I don't know whether the tunneled frames support VLANs or not;

    Symantec firewall packets - a comment in the code says "Dissection of VLAN
information will have to wait until availability of a capture file from an
SGSv3 box using VLAN tagging", so presumably it supports VLANs.

If we put VLAN support into ethertype() and dissect_snap(), then, for those
others, we can, if they *do* require VLAN support, add it later as needed.
