No, i suspect mv88e6390x_ports_cmode_init() is being called from the
wrong place, or needs to be called from a second location.

[Goes and looks at the code]

Yes, it should also be called in mv88e6xxx_probe(). I would call it
just after the call to mv88e6xxx_detect(), so that it is the same as
in mv88e6xxx_drv_probe().

There are two ways DSA drivers can be probed. The legacy way, which is
optional, and is slowly getting removed, and the current way. Heiner
is new to DSA and probably missed that, and only handled the legacy
probe method. I also missed checking when i reviewed to patch :-(
