Just to be sure here. There is no way to use the second port connected
to the CPU as a CPU port?

The Marvell chips do allow this. So i developed a proof of concept
which had a mapping between cpu ports and slave ports. slave port X
should you cpu port y for its traffic. This never got past proof of

If this can be made to work for qca8k, i would prefer having this
general concept, than specific hacks for pass through.
