Just some general note on the way the driver seems to be going there
seems to be a multiplication of new ops being introduced, and most of
them seem to default to the mv88e6xxx (generic) ones. Should you do
something like:

if (!ops->foo)
	ops->foo = mv88e6xxx_foo

Such that you reduce the possibility for a specific switch model to lack
such an operation?
