You could eliminate a lot of boilerplate code that delegates
ethtool/netdev operations from the network interface to the switch
driver if you made this a DSA driver, without registering a tag
protocol or by reworking that.

Other than that, this is a really nice piece of driver you got here,
it's definitively a clean design. Thanks!
