Subject: Re: [PATCH RFC] net: bridge: Clear offload_fwd_mark when passing
 frame up bridge interface.

> I like Andrew's patch because it is the Rx equivalent of

> second option, it should allow us to remove the clearing of the mark in

> nbp_switchdev_allowed_egress() and remove br_switchdev_frame_unmark()
