Subject: [RFC PATCH net-next 00/16] LAG offload for Ocelot DSA switches

This patch series comes as a continuation of the discussion started with
Tobias Waldekranz in his patch series to offload bonding/team from DSA:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/netdevbpf/patch/20201202091356.24075-3-tobias@waldekranz.com/

On one hand, it shows the rework that needs to be done to ocelot such
that a pure switchdev and a DSA driver could share the same implementation.

On the other hand, it tries to identify what data structures does DSA
really need to keep and pass along to drivers, and which structures are
best left for the drivers to deal privately with them.

Testing has been done in the following topology:

         +----------------------------------+
         | Board 1         br0              |
         |             +---------+          |
         |            /           \         |
         |            |           |         |
         |            |         bond0       |
         |            |        +-----+      |
         |            |       /       \     |
         |  eno0     swp0    swp1    swp2   |
         +---|--------|-------|-------|-----+
             |        |       |       |
             +--------+       |       |
               Cable          |       |
                         Cable|       |Cable
               Cable          |       |
             +--------+       |       |
             |        |       |       |
         +---|--------|-------|-------|-----+
         |  eno0     swp0    swp1    swp2   |
         |            |       \       /     |
         |            |        +-----+      |
         |            |         bond0       |
         |            |           |         |
         |            \           /         |
         |             +---------+          |
         | Board 2         br0              |
         +----------------------------------+

The same script can be run on both Board 1 and Board 2 to set this up:

#!/bin/bash

ip link del bond0
ip link add bond0 type bond mode 802.3ad
ip link set swp1 down && ip link set swp1 master bond0 && ip link set swp1 up
ip link set swp2 down && ip link set swp2 master bond0 && ip link set swp2 up
ip link del br0
ip link add br0 type bridge
ip link set bond0 master br0
ip link set swp0 master br0

Then traffic can be tested between eno0 of Board 1 and eno0 of Board 2.
