I tractate it as virtual identification not relating it to vlans only.
VID just uses for eth devices part of already reserved address.
I was also thinking about passing smth like pointer on vlan device,
frankly even don't remember what stopped me, probably size of pointer or
so, maybe it looked harder... but it still seems possible and at least for
ethernet address is enough space: 32 - 6 = 26, 26 > 8.

Despite it only combines methods with extended address space and passing
link to vlan device, it adds ability to apply allmulti and promisc modes
per vlans.

It becomes even harder, traversing all structure of devices, seems not very
simple task.
