Hmm. Shall I split the series below, would that be ok?

First patchset,
(a) devlink piece to add/delete port
(b) mlx5 counter part

Second patchset,
(a) devlink piece to set the state
(b) mlx5 counter part

Follow on patchset to create/delete sf's netdev on virtbus in mlx5 + devlink plumbing.
Netdevsim after that.
