Subject: [patch net-next 01/19] mlxsw: spectrum: Remove unused traps

From: Nogah Frankel <>

Since commit 99724c18fc66 ("mlxsw: spectrum: Introduce support for
router interfaces") we no longer rely on flooding traffic to the CPU in
order to trap packets intended for the host itself. Therefore, the FDB
MC trap can be removed.
Remove traps for protocols that are not supported yet.
