I think we should leave things as-is.

If this proves to be an issue (esp. if we have crasher-tests...),
we could make a new subdir, e.g. tests/shell/testcases/kernel, place
thse tests there and then have the 'make check' export a new environment
variable, e.g. 'SKIP_KERNEL_TESTS" or whatever.

But for now I think things are fine, Fedora should catch up soon with
the vlan test case (its already in 6.5.y stable) so this will go away.

And for others this hints that they need to complain to their vendor,
or backport a the fix to resolve this bug.

I think SKIP should be reseved only for tests that fail a feature-probe
