This patchset is the restyled, adjusted and (partly) re-worked version
of the patchset that can be found in this GitHub PR
originally authored by Fabian Knittel.

The status of this new patchset is tracked here:

These new patches have already gone through a first round of review by
Gert and are now being posted on the mailing list for broader

In a nutshell, this new feature allows to assign each client to a VLAN
(like if it was a host plugged into a switch, with OpenVPN server being
the switch). This will ensure proper isolation between clients on
different VLANs.
On top of that, depending on the configuration, clients can be bridged with
different networks on the server side, thanks to the VLAN tagging
applied to their outgoing packets (more is explained in the additional
manpage content).

A specific document explaining more in details how this feature can be
useful in common setups is planned to be drafted after the patchset has
been merged.

Feedback is welcome!
