However, iptables does not have an understanding of VLANs. At least not to my knowledge. This means that iptables has no knowledge of the user_priority field and therefore cannot map to or from it. The only solution I could think of was to modify the VLAN driver to allow the mapping between ToS and user_priority. In the same vein as mapping between user_priority and linux priority. Before I attempted it I wanted to know that I had no better options.
