Would it make sense to warn the user that there might be
transmit/receive issues with the DSA tagging protocol if either
dev_set_mtu() fails or mtu > dev->max_mtu?

Not that I think it matters too much to people because unbinding the
switch driver and expecting the CPU port to continue operating is
wishful thinking, but we should probably unwind that operation in
dsa_master_teardown(), right?
