Subject: [PATCH net-next v2 0/9] net: Get rid of switchdev_port_attr_get()

Hi all,

This patch series splits the removal of the switchdev_ops that was
proposed a few times before and first tackles the easy part which is the
removal of the single call to switchdev_port_attr_get() within the
bridge code.

As suggestd by Ido, this patch series adds a
context as the caller of switchdev_port_attr_set(), so not deferred, and
then the operation is carried out in deferred context with setting a
support bridge port flag.

Follow-up patches will do the switchdev_ops removal after introducing
the proper helpers for the switchdev blocking notifier to work across
stacked devices (unlike the previous submissions).

Changes in v2:

- differentiate callers not supporting switchdev_port_attr_set() from
  the driver not being able to support specific bridge flags

- pass "mask" instead of "flags" for the PRE_BRIDGE_FLAGS check

- skip prepare phase for PRE_BRIDGE_FLAGS

- corrected documentation a bit more

- tested with veth/VRF
