But VID 0 has a special meaning for the kernel, it means the port's private
database (when it is isolated, non-bridged), it is not meant to be programmed
in the switch. That's why I would've put that knowledge into the DSA layer,
which job is to translate the kernel operations to the (dumb) DSA drivers.

I hope I'm seeing things correctly here.
