You can only disable offload on the parent interface.

The only flag affecting this behaviour is vlanhwtag. Various
permutations of the interface flags make no difference to this
behaviour as long as hardware tagging is enabled.

It seems like it's corrupting large packets on transmit when vlanhwtag
is enabled. From the tcpdump output it looks like a padding or
packet length issue.

Here's what tcpdump on the re(4) device thinks it's transmitting:

00:08:a1:3c:32:9c > 00:90:fb:0c:89:7d, ethertype 802.1Q (0x8100), length 1510: vlan 1000, p 0, ethertype IPv4, 196.22.138.92 > 196.22.138.89: OSPFv2, Database Description, length: 1472

Here's what was actually recieved by the em(4) device on the
neighbour. Note the absense of the 801.1Q header:

00:08:a1:3c:32:9c > 00:90:fb:0c:89:7d, ethertype IPv4 (0x0800), length 1506: 196.22.138.92 > 196.22.138.89: OSPFv2, Database Description, length: 1472

When vlanhwtagging is disabled, the re(4) device transmits:

00:90:fb:0c:89:7d > 00:08:a1:3c:32:9c, ethertype 802.1Q (0x8100), length 1510: vlan 1000, p 0, ethertype IPv4, 196.22.138.89 > 196.22.138.92: OSPFv2, Database Description, length: 1472

and the em(4) device recieves:

00:08:a1:3c:32:9c > 00:90:fb:0c:89:7d, ethertype 802.1Q (0x8100), length 1510: vlan 1000, p 0, ethertype IPv4, 196.22.138.92 > 196.22.138.89: OSPFv2, Database Description, length: 1472

Let me know if you need more detailed tcpdump output than I've provided.
