Subject: [PATCH net-next 00/15] Traffic support for dsa_8021q in vlan_filtering=1 mode

From: Vladimir Oltean <>

This series is an attempt to support as much as possible in terms of
traffic I/O from the network stack with the only dsa_8021q user thus
far, sja1105.

The hardware doesn't support pushing a second VLAN tag to packets that
are already tagged, so our only option is to combine the dsa_8021q with
the user tag into a single tag and decode that on the CPU.

The assumption is that there is a type of use cases for which 7 VLANs
per port are more than sufficient, and that there's another type of use
cases where the full 4096 entries are barely enough. Those use cases are
very different from one another, so I prefer trying to give both the
best experience by creating this best_effort_vlan_filtering knob to
select the mode in which they want to operate in.

This series depends on "[v4,resend,net-next,0/4] Cross-chip bridging for
disjoint DSA trees", submitted here:
