Both of the options you're using are intended for testing/debugging/
contrived purposes.  They're not really meant to be used in the
general case for actual address assignment.

Yes, there are a few threads in the archive on how to do this.  On
linux you have to set the interface so it's 'cooked' (ISC software
doesn't grok the 802.1q tag).

The specifics of how to do this escape me at the moment.
