The soft version is the version in the kernel which inserts and
removes tags. The hardware "accelerated" version is the version
that uses the hardware features of the card.
If the driver was correctly written, vconfig would have
automagically worked and used the hardware accelerated version.
Vconfig configures the kernel, and the kernel chooses which
version.
The normal behaviour is using the sofware version unless the
driver supports the harware variant, but somehow the driver
probably puts the nic in a always-remove-tag mode, hence none of
the versions work.
