> This patchset includes two improvements with regards to shared buffer

> The first part of this patchset forbids the user from performing illegal

> In order to better communicate these configuration failures to the user,
> extack is propagated from devlink towards drivers. This is done in

> The second part of the patchset deals with the shared buffer
> configuration of the CPU port. When a packet is trapped by the device,
> it is sent across the PCI bus to the attached host CPU. From the
> device's perspective, it is as if the packet is transmitted through the
> CPU port.

> The configuration is adjusted by patches #9-#14 that create two new pools
> - ingress & egress - which are dedicated for CPU traffic.

Series applied, thank you.
