Core Tag Type is the global register 0x19 present only on 6185 and
similar. It is used when egressing double tagged frames. This value is
also checked when ingressing frames on ports in UseCoreTag mode.

Note that we might remove this flag and setup condition, because 0x8100
is the reset value anyway.
