VLAN interface choices in 2.0 (creating, assigning)
While fixing some other issues I noticed that when you attempt to create additional VLANs, the VLAN interfaces are also offered as potential parents. Furthermore, when assigning interfaces the VLAN interfaces show up twice, once as usual ("VLAN 10 on em0") and then again as "em0_vlan10 (xx:...:xx)"
This seems to be a side effect of the VLAN interface naming changes, and they are being included since the interface name starts with a supported driver: "em0_vlan10" does start with "em".
It probably needs some extra checks to exclude interfaces from those places that have "vlan" in the actual interface name.

I did a sync on a 2.0 test box just now and I still see a VLAN interfaces in both of the places I mentioned, as new VLAN parent choices, and as interfaces to assign.
Now I only see one of the incorrect VLAN interface choices listed, but I have two defined. I think before they had both shown up but I'd have to revert and try it again to be sure. So it's a little better than it was before at least.

This fixes it.
Seems netstat has problems with such long interface names.
