You also have an iproute2 patch prepared, right?

$ devlink port
spi/spi0.1/0: type notset flavour <unknown flavour>  <- this should read "unused"
spi/spi0.1/1: type eth netdev swp2 flavour physical port 1
spi/spi0.1/2: type eth netdev swp3 flavour physical port 2
spi/spi0.1/3: type eth netdev swp4 flavour physical port 3
spi/spi0.1/4: type notset flavour cpu port 4
