Hi Andrew,

I only own a simple 5 ports switch (88E6176) which has no problem of
mirroring the other ports to a single port. Except for a bandwith
shortage ofcourse. While I thought I checked adding and removing ports,
I seemed to forgot to check removing ingress traffic as it will now
disable mirroring egress traffic. Searching for how I can distinct
ingress from egress mirroring in port_mirror_del, I saw there is a
variable in the mirror struct called ingress. Which seems strange,
because why is it a seperate argument to the port_mirror_add function?

Origally I planned to be able to set the egress and ingress mirror
seperatly. But in my laziness when I saw there already was a function
to configure the destination port this functionality was lost.

Because the other drivers which implemented the port_mirror_add (b53 and
ksz9477) also lacks additional checks to prevent new mirror filters from
breaking previous ones I assumed they were not necessary.

At least I will soon sent a new version with at least the issue of
removing mirror ingress traffic fixed and the ability to define a 
seperate ingress and egress port.
