                                                               ^^^^^

Won't it crash in devlink_port_type_eth_set()?
The first line there dereferences pointer.
  7612         const struct net_device_ops *ops = netdev->netdev_ops;

And can we call to devlink_port_type_*_set() without IS_ENABLED() check?

Thanks
