What I was talking about in the email yesterday was 0x8794 support
in ksz8795.c. Is the cpu port configuration going to work there?
Isn't the CPU port always port 5 (index 4)?

It sure as hell looked like it until commit c9f4633b93ea ("net: dsa:
microchip: remove usage of mib_port_count") came along. I wonder if 
ksz8794 works on net-next :/
