What is missing from the devlink lc view is what line card is actually
in the slot. Say if i provision for a card4port, but actually insert a
card2port. It would be nice to have something like:

 $ devlink lc
 netdevsim/netdevsim10:
   lc 0 state provisioned type card4ports
     supported_types:
        card1port card2ports card4ports
     inserted_type:
        card2ports;
   lc 1 state unprovisioned
     supported_types:
        card1port card2ports card4ports
     inserted_type:
        None

I assume if i prevision for card4ports but actually install a
card2ports, all the interfaces stay down?

Maybe

> $ echo "Y"> /sys/kernel/debug/netdevsim/netdevsim10/linecards/0/active

should actually be
    echo "card2ports" > /sys/kernel/debug/netdevsim/netdevsim10/linecards/0/active

so you can emulate somebody putting the wrong card in the slot?
