Given the platforms I am using this is not even noticeable, but I did
not test with more than 10 uppers being added to the switch port.

Speaking of that part of the code, I was also wondering whether you
wanted this to be netdev_for_each_upper_dev_rcu(br, upper_dev, iter) and
catch a bridge device upper as opposed to a switch port upper? Either
way is fine and there are possibly use cases for either.
