Hmm, I'm not sure this is the right way forward.  This patch has the
effect of disabling:

d33ec4525007 ("net: mvpp2: add an RSS classification step for each flow")

but the commit you're pointing at which caused the regression is:

895586d5dc32 ("net: mvpp2: cls: Use RSS contexts to handle RSS tables")


Looking at the timeline here, it looks like Matteo raised the issue
very quickly after the patch was sent on the 14th April, and despite
following up on it, despite me following up on it, bootlin have
remained quiet.  For a regression, that's not particularly good, and
doesn't leave many options but to ask davem to revert a commit, or
if possible fix it (which there doesn't seem to be any willingness
for either - maybe it's a feature no one uses on this platform?)

Would reverting the commit you point to as the cause (895586d5dc32)
resolve the problem, and have any advantage over entirely disabling
RSS?
