Subject: [PATCH net 2/2] net: switchdev: don't set port_obj_info->handled true when -EOPNOTSUPP

It's not true that switchdev_port_obj_notify() only inspects the
->handled field of "struct switchdev_notifier_port_obj_info" if
call_switchdev_blocking_notifiers() returns 0 - there's a WARN_ON()
triggering for a non-zero return combined with ->handled not being
true. But the real problem here is that -EOPNOTSUPP is not being
properly handled.

The wrapper functions switchdev_handle_port_obj_add() et al change a
return value of -EOPNOTSUPP to 0, and the treatment of ->handled in
switchdev_port_obj_notify() seems to be designed to change that back
to -EOPNOTSUPP in case nobody actually acted on the notifier (i.e.,
everybody returned -EOPNOTSUPP).

Currently, as soon as some device down the stack passes the check_cb()
check, ->handled gets set to true, which means that
switchdev_port_obj_notify() cannot actually ever return -EOPNOTSUPP.

This, for example, means that the detection of hardware offload
support in the MRP code is broken - br_mrp_set_ring_role() always ends
up setting mrp->ring_role_offloaded to 1, despite not a single
mainline driver implementing any of the SWITCHDEV_OBJ_ID*_MRP. So
since the MRP code thinks the generation of MRP test frames has been
offloaded, no such frames are actually put on the wire.

So, continue to set ->handled true if any callback returns success or
any error distinct from -EOPNOTSUPP. But if all the callbacks return
-EOPNOTSUPP, make sure that ->handled stays false, so the logic in
switchdev_port_obj_notify() can propagate that information.
