I removed this code, but then on link down the locked entries were not
cleared out. Something not as thought?

That is what seems to happen, but maybe I am wrong. Looking at the dsa
functions dsa_port_inherit_brport_flags() and
dsa_port_clear_brport_flags(), they set the mask for which underlying
function is called, and it looks to me that they call once for all the
flags: BR_LEARNING, BR_FLOOD, BR_MCAST_FLOOD, BR_BCAST_FLOOD,
BR_PORT_LOCKED?

When added they are added with bridge FDB flags: extern_learn offload
locked, with a SWITCHDEV_FDB_ADD_TO_BRIDGE event. So they are owned by
the driver.
When the driver deletes the locked entry the bridge FDB entry is
removes by the SWITCHDEV_FDB_DEL_TO_BRIDGE event from the driver. That
seems quite fair?

Now I take the lock in the function regardless. No boolean.

I cannot see the difference here...?

Another issue...

I have removed the timers as they are superfluous and now just use the
worker and jiffies. But I have found that the whole ageing time seems
to be broken on the 5.17 kernel I am running. I don't know if it has
been fixed, but the ageing timeout is supposed to be given in seconds.
Here is the output from various functions after the command "ip link
set dev br0 type bridge ageing_time 1500" (that is nominally 1500
seconds according to man page!):

dsa_switch_ageing_time: ageing_time 10000, ageing_time_min 1000,
ageing_time_max 3825000
mv88e6xxx_set_ageing_time: set ageing time to 10000
br0: failed (err=-34) to set attribute (id=6)
dsa_switch_ageing_time: ageing_time 15000, ageing_time_min 1000,
ageing_time_max 3825000
mv88e6xxx_set_ageing_time: set ageing time to 15000

The 15000 set corresponds to 150 seconds! (I hardcoded the dsa
ageing_time_min to 1000)
