Subject: [PATCH net-next 00/13] Improvements to DSA core VLAN manipulation

In preparation of submitting the NXP SJA1105 driver, the Broadcom b53
and Mediatek mt7530 drivers have been found to apply some VLAN
workarounds that are needed in the new driver as well.

Therefore this patchset is mostly simply promoting the DSA driver
workarounds for VLAN to the generic code.

The b53 driver was applying a few workarounds in order to convince DSA
that its vlan_filtering setting is not really per-port. This is now
simply set by the driver via a DSA variable at probe time. The sja1105
driver will be a second user of this.

The mt7530 was also keeping track of when the .port_vlan_filtering
callback was being called. Remove the kept state from this driver
and simplify dealing with vlan_filtering in the generic case.


Find the best way to deal generically with the situation described below

Vladimir Oltean (13):
  net: dsa: Fix pharse -> phase typo
  net: dsa: Store vlan_filtering as a property of dsa_port
  net: dsa: Be aware of switches where VLAN filtering is a global
  net: dsa: b53: Let DSA handle mismatched VLAN filtering settings
  net: dsa: Unset vlan_filtering when ports leave the bridge
  net: dsa: mt7530: Let DSA handle the unsetting of vlan_filtering
  net: dsa: Keep the vlan_filtering setting in dsa_switch if it's global
  net: dsa: Add helper function to retrieve VLAN awareness setting
  net: dsa: mt7530: Use the DSA vlan_filtering helper function
  net: dsa: Skip calling .port_vlan_filtering on no change
  net: dsa: b53: Let DSA call .port_vlan_filtering only when necessary
  net: dsa: b53: Use vlan_filtering property from dsa_switch
  net: dsa: Add more convenient functions for installing port VLANs
