I've just changed my last patch to set these modes from
dsa_port_bridge_join() and dsa_port_bridge_leave(), and while testing,
I notice this on the ZII rev B board:

At boot (without anything connected to any of the switch ports):

br0: port 1(lan0) entered blocking state
br0: port 1(lan0) entered disabled state
device lan0 entered promiscuous mode
device eth1 entered promiscuous mode
br0: port 2(lan1) entered blocking state
br0: port 2(lan1) entered disabled state
device lan1 entered promiscuous mode
...

I then removed lan0 from the bridge:

device lan0 left promiscuous mode
br0: port 1(lan0) entered disabled state

and then added it back:

br0: port 1(lan0) entered blocking state
br0: port 1(lan0) entered disabled state
device lan0 entered promiscuous mode

Now, you'd expect lan0 and lan1 to be configured the same at this
point, and the same as it was before lan0 was removed from the bridge?
lan0 is port 0, lan1 is port 1 on this switch - and the register debug
says:

    GLOBAL GLOBAL2 SERDES     0    1    2    3    4    5    6
 0:  c800       0    1140  500f 500f 500f 500f 500f 4e07 4d04
...
 4:  40a8     258     1e0   43c  43d  43d   7c  430  53f 373f

Note that port 0 is in disabled state, but port 1 and 2 are in
blocking state... but wait, the kernel printed a message saying it was
in disabled state!

If I do the same for lan1, port 1 above changed from 0x43d to 0x433 as
expected, and then returns to 0x43c.

It looks like DSA isn't always in sync with bridge as per port state.
