Subject: Re: [PATCH net-next 0/3] octeontx2-af: add support for KPU profile
 customization


Please create a proper abstraction for uploading configuration information
from a file into a device.

Otherwise every driver will have their own custom weird stuff, unique
module parameter names (module parameters are absolutely rejected for
networking drivers for this reason), etc.  Therefore the user experience
will be awful.

This is non-negotiable.  We are long overdue for such a facility, and
if I were to allow a workaround like this for you, I have to allow it
for everyone else too.

Thank you.
