Devlink port has information about physical port, which don't have to
map 1:1 to netdevs. It also has lanes and port splitting which you may
want to report.


For now please make sure to not include any dead code in your
submissions (register defines etc. may be okay), perhaps try:

diff --git a/drivers/net/ethernet/qlogic/qed/qed_dev.c b/drivers/net/ethernet/qlogic/qed/qed_dev.c

+		break;
 	default:
 		DP_NOTICE(p_hwfn, "Unknown port mode in 0x%08x\n", core_cfg);
 		break;

And see if it will pass the muster.

Dead code makes it harder to review the patches.
