What was the port's STP state before the link down event, and did it
change after the link down?

The relevant code in DSA is:

int dsa_port_set_state(struct dsa_port *dp, u8 state, bool do_fast_age)
{
	struct dsa_switch *ds = dp->ds;
	int port = dp->index;

	if (!ds->ops->port_stp_state_set)
		return -EOPNOTSUPP;

	ds->ops->port_stp_state_set(ds, port, state);

	if (!dsa_port_can_configure_learning(dp) ||
	    (do_fast_age && dp->learning)) {
		/* Fast age FDB entries or flush appropriate forwarding database
		 * for the given port, if we are moving it from Learning or
		 * Forwarding state, to Disabled or Blocking or Listening state.
		 * Ports that were standalone before the STP state change don't
		 * need to fast age the FDB, since address learning is off in
		 * standalone mode.
		 */

		if ((dp->stp_state == BR_STATE_LEARNING ||
		     dp->stp_state == BR_STATE_FORWARDING) &&
		    (state == BR_STATE_DISABLED ||
		     state == BR_STATE_BLOCKING ||
		     state == BR_STATE_LISTENING))
			dsa_port_fast_age(dp);
	}

	dp->stp_state = state;

	return 0;
}

If the STP state wasn't LEARNING or FORWARDING, there weren't supposed
to be dynamic FDB entries on the port in the first place, so DSA says
there's nothing to flush, and doesn't call dsa_port_fast_age().
Are there dynamic FDB entries being installed on a port that isn't
in a state that's supposed to learn? I guess the answer is yes.
Is that what you want, or should the locked entries be recorded only in
the LEARNING or FORWARDING states, otherwise discarded?

What you actually want to say is: "mv88e6xxx_port_set_lock() is also
called when the DSA port joins a bridge, due to the switchdev attribute
replay logic present in dsa_port_switchdev_sync_attrs()".

Which, by the way, is logic that you've added yourself, in commit
b9e8b58fd2cb ("net: dsa: Include BR_PORT_LOCKED in the list of synced
brport flags") ;)

You are free to return early from mv88e6xxx_port_set_lock() if nothing has
changed. The DSA layer doesn't keep track of the locked state of the
port so it cannot deduce whether propagating to the switch driver is
necessary or not.

I'm just pointing out that you left other (probably unintended) code
paths for which the SWITCHDEV_FDB_DEL_TO_BRIDGE notifier is quite
useless. I haven't yet looked at your newest revision to see what
changed there.

Right what? I'm genuinely curious what optimization are you talking about.

Just out of curiosity, are you even trying, are you looking at the
difference using a monospace font?

Are you talking about this known problem, that the ageing time values in
seconds need to be scaled up by a factor of USER_HZ when passed to the
kernel?
