Could you show us commands that get executed?  I think that'd be much
quicker for people to parse.

From a cursory look it seems you create a "basic" netdev.  Can this
netdev pass traffic?

I'd suggest you implement devlink "limp mode".  Devlink can flash the
device now.  You can register a devlink instance without registering
any "minimal" netdevs, and flash with devlink.
