The line wrapping was correct, please keep in under 80. Please tell
your colleges at Mellanox.

What's the point of this local variable?

just put the call in the if ()

Honestly this patch is doing too much for a fix.

All you need is the RTNL lock and then add:

+               struct net *net = devlink_net(devlink_port->devlink);
                struct net_device *netdev = devlink_port->type_dev;
 
                if (netdev &&
+                   net_eq(net, dev_net(netdev)) &&
                    (nla_put_u32(msg, DEVLINK_ATTR_PORT_NETDEV_IFINDEX,
                                 netdev->ifindex) ||
                     nla_put_string(msg, DEVLINK_ATTR_PORT_NETDEV_NAME,


You can do refactoring later in net-next. Maybe even add a check that
drivers which support reload set namespace local on their netdevs.
