Hi Codrin

You don't indicate which tree this is for. net-next, or net?  It looks
like it fixes a real issue, so it probably should be for net. But
patches to net should be minimal. Is it possible to do the

	ds->num_ports = swdev->port_cnt;

without all the other changes? You can then have a refactoring patch
in net-next.
