|Feedback on Using VLAN's for production Voice VE's [message #42237]

I've been using OpenVZ with kernel 2.6.18-14-fza-686-bigmem
successfully for some time now. Running on Dell PE 2800's and have
many Asterisk VE's in production using straight NIC bridging with each
VE getting a single IP.
I have a new requirement for a VE to run 2 interfaces, one bridged
public IP and a private IP connected through a VLAN. So my idea is to
bridge the HN eth0 for my public IP's and setup eth1 as a VLAN trunk
port and bridge the VLAN's to their specific VE's.
Conceptually I understand how to do this and think I can get through
the configuration ok. I have read some posts about enabling VLAN's in
OpenVZ causes a performance hit and can produce unreliable conditions
for production use. Is there a certain kernel that works better than
another for using VLAN's? Can someone point me in the right direction
of a good howto? I'm really concerned about adding functionality that
will screw up a rock solid production system.
Any suggestions or feedback on this would be greatly appreciated.
