for VLANs it's very convenient to use an MTU of 1504 on the ethx device (and 
1500 on the vlanxx devices).  but most 100mbit drivers don't allow any MTU of 
more than 1500 (even if the cards themselves usually allow at least 1600).  
all Gb drivers i know allow for MTUs up to 9000

but i don't know if your scripts try to setup the MTU to 1504... might be 
something else
