I think enabling learning on the CPU port would fix the problem
sometimes, but not always. (actually nothing can solve it always, see
below)
The switch learns the new route only if it receives any packets from
the CPU port, with a SA equal to the station you're trying to reach.
But what if the station is not sending any traffic at the moment,
because it is simply waiting for connections to it first (just an
example)?
Unless there is any traffic already coming from the destination
station too, your patch won't work.
I am currently facing a similar situation with the ocelot/felix
switches, but in that case, enabling SA learning on the CPU port is
not possible.
The way I dealt with it is by forcing a flush of the FDB entries on
the port, in the following scenarios:
- link goes down
- port leaves its bridge
So traffic towards a destination that has migrated away will
temporarily be flooded again (towards the CPU port as well).
There is still one case which isn't treated using this approach: when
the station migrates away from a switch port that is not directly
connected to this one. So no "link down" events would get generated in
that case. We would still have to wait until the address expires in
that case. I don't think that particular situation can be solved.
My point is: if we agree that this is a larger problem, then DSA
should have a .port_fdb_flush method and schedule a workqueue whenever
necessary. Yes, it is a costly operation, but it will still probably
take a lot less than the 300 seconds that the bridge configures for
address ageing.

Thoughts?
