Subject: [PATCH net-next v2] net: dsa: mv88e6xxx: don't set non-existing learn2all bit for 6220/6250

The 6220 and 6250 switches do not have a learn2all bit in global1, ATU
control register; bit 3 is reserverd.

On the switches that do have that bit, it is used to control whether
learning frames are sent out the ports that have the message_port bit
set. So rather than adding yet another chip method, use the existence
of the ->port_setup_message_port method as a proxy for determining
whether the learn2all bit exists (and should be set).

Signed-off-by: Rasmus Villemoes <>
v2: add comment explaining why ->port_setup_message_port is being used.

This doesn't fix anything from what I can tell, in particular not the
VLAN problems I'm having, so just tagging for net-next. But I do think
it's worth it on the general principle of not poking around in
undocumented/reserved bits.
