It would be interesting to see what is the ingress drop reason, if that
could be deduced from the drop counters that are incrementing in ethtool -S.

I am not confident that it can be a VTU issue, given the fact that you
have not said that you see VTU violation warnings, which are fairly loud
on mv88e6xxx.

The procedure of joining a new port to the bridge does alter the VTU,
since that second port needs to be a part of the default_pvid of the
bridge as soon as it goes up (VID 1). However that is not the main thing
that bridging a new port does - instead, the in-chip Port VLAN map is
altered.

In theory it _would_ be possible (even if unlikely) for the VTU to get
overwritten by the second port join, in a way that removes the first
port from the bridge's VID 1. Remember that this issue only seems to be
observable on 8250, so it seems logical to search in 8250 specific code
first (therefore making the VTU a more likely suspect than the in-chip
Port VLAN map).

Since you've already made the effort to boot kernel 5.9, you could make
the extra leap to try out the 5.10 rc's and look at the VTU using
Andrew's devlink based tool:

You would expect to see two U's for your ports, and not something else
like X.
