Subject: [PATCH v2 net-next 00/14] Make DSA tag drivers kernel modules

istorically, DSA tag drivers have been compiled into the kernel as
part of the DSA core. With the growing number of tag drivers, it makes
sense to allow this driver code to be compiled as a module, and loaded
on demand.

Move name to end of structure, keeping the hot entries at the beginning.
More tag protocol to end of structure to keep hot members at the beginning.
Fix indent of #endif
Rewrite to move list pointer into a new structure
void functions, since there cannot be errors
Fix fall-through comment
Reorder patch for unused symbols to before tag drivers can be modules
tab/space cleanup
Help text wording

Andrew Lunn (14):
  dsa: Add SPDX header to tag drivers.
  dsa: Move tagger name into its ops structure
  dsa: Add MODULE_ALIAS to taggers in preparation to become modules
  dsa: Add MODULE_LICENSE to tag drivers
  dsa: Add TAG protocol to tag ops
  dsa: Add boilerplate helper to register DSA tag driver modules
  dsa: Keep link list of tag drivers
  dsa: Register the none tagger ops
  dsa: Rename dsa_resolve_tag_protocol() to _get ready for locking
  dsa: Add stub tag driver put method
  dsa: Make use of the list of tag drivers
  dsa: Cleanup unneeded table and make tag structures static
  dsa: tag_brcm: Avoid unused symbols
  dsa: Allow tag drivers to be built as modules
