The driver has been split in net-next and deviates significantly from
what is in net. I can send a patch to net as well, but that will not
cover net-next.

View from net:


View from net-next:

    source "drivers/net/dsa/realtek/Kconfig"

    menuconfig NET_DSA_REALTEK

I am not well-versed in the procedures here, but since 5.17 has now been
released, isn't it more important to fix 5.18, which will soon have the
net-next branch merged in? Hence the patch should target net-next?

As for 5.17 and the old (net) structure, I can send a separate patch to
net. Does that sound OK?

Once that is clarified I can re-send with a Fixes: tag.

Thanks for your help.

Kind regards,
