>From John's patch:
"The switch allows us to swap the internal wirering of the two cpu ports.
For the HW offloading to work the ethernet MAC conencting to the LAN
ports must be wired to cpu port 0. There is HW in the wild that does not
fulfill this requirement. On these boards we need to swap the cpu ports."

This option is somewhat linked to instances where both MAC0 and MAC6 are
used as CPU ports. I may omit this for now since support for this hasn't
been added and MAC0 is hard-coded as the CPU port. The initial intention
here was to cover options commonly set by OpenWrt devices, based upon
their ar8327-initvals, to allow migration to qca8k.
