My next work is to push the switchdev callback for FDB dump down to the
DSA drivers. It works if I forward declare all these in net/dsa.h:

 * struct switchdev_obj
 * struct switchdev_obj_port_fdb
 * typedef int switchdev_obj_dump_cb_t(struct switchdev_obj *obj);

Then will come the VLAN ops, etc. It doesn't feel like the way to go.

Below is how these dependency errors look like. There are two issues
this patchset fixes. First, here's what happens you just add:

    #include <net/switchdev.h>

in include/net/dsa.h:

[...]

Removing the dsa.h include from linux/netdevice.h gets rid of these
warnings, but then, the DSA code complains with the following:

[...]

Finally, adding:

    #include <net/dsa.h>

in net/dsa/dsa_priv.h fixes these errors.

Does the patchset makes sense?

Best,
