VLAN/MPLS FAQ

Hello list.

Whilst looking through tcpdump and libpcap issues, I noted that the
specifics of "vlan" and "mpls" keywords in pcap filters is one of the
most common causes of confusion. So it should be in the FAQ.

That said, it is not clear if it would be better to have one long FAQ
entry or a few shorter ones, and whether it would be better to copy or
to rephrase what has already been explained in detail in at least 10 bug
reports, or to provide the links, or to write something from scratch.
What would make the most sense in your opinion?
