Good point, so an unique index for DSA switches could look like the
DSA platform device id plus the switch index in the tree..., but then
we would need something like (pdev->id << N) | switch index, so that
would not give a consistent naming scheme across different devices.

Maybe we are just better with using the Linux IDR API in include/linux/idr.h?
