Actually the more I look at this the more I think it might make sense to
just have a pair of function pointers, maybe even a header ops structure
that is maintained in the dsa_switch_tree for xmit and rcv.  Then
instead of having to define 4 slaves each with only one function
different between them you could have just one function that calls the
xmit function pointer contained in the dsa_switch_tree structure.

Thanks,

Alex
