This is actually a good comment that will simplify my future work a
little bit. I need to add a Kconfig-selectable tagger for the Felix
driver (tag_ocelot.c vs a future tag_ocelot_8021q.c) and, predictably
enough, one tagger needs promisc on master while the other doesn't.

If you have no other comments on this series, I'm thinking about
resending it right away with this change, since I made a big blunder and
the people in Cc on the tagger patches were not actually copied to my
emails, since I have supresscc=all in my .gitconfig.
