Subject: [PATCH v3 10/15] dsa: Add new optional devicetree property to
 describe EEPROM size

The dsa core now supports reading from and writing to a switch EEPROM
if connected. Describe optional devicetree property indicating that
an EEPROM is present and its size.

Signed-off-by: Guenter Roeck <>
- eeprom-length property is attached to switch devicetree node,
  not to dsa node.
- Added patch
