Ohhh ok now it makes sense.

If the ops is not supported should I return -ENOSUPP?
Example some ops won't be supported like the get_phy_flags or
connect_tag_protocol for example.

Anyway the series is ready, I was just pushing it... At the end it's 23
patch big... (I know you will hate me but at least it's reviewable)

My solution currently was this...

	ops = devm_kzalloc(&mdiodev->dev, sizeof(*ops), GFP_KERNEL);
	if (!ops)
		return -ENOMEM;

	/* Copy common ops */
	memcpy(ops, &qca8k_switch_ops, sizeof(*ops));

	/* Setup specific ops */
	ops->get_tag_protocol = qca8k_get_tag_protocol;
	ops->setup = qca8k_setup;
	ops->phylink_get_caps = qca8k_phylink_get_caps;
	ops->phylink_mac_select_pcs = qca8k_phylink_mac_select_pcs;
	ops->phylink_mac_config = qca8k_phylink_mac_config;
	ops->phylink_mac_link_down = qca8k_phylink_mac_link_down;
	ops->phylink_mac_link_up = qca8k_phylink_mac_link_up;
	ops->get_phy_flags = qca8k_get_phy_flags;
	ops->master_state_change = qca8k_master_change;
	ops->connect_tag_protocol = qca8k_connect_tag_protocol;

	/* Assign the final ops */
	priv->ds->ops = ops;

Will wait your response on how to hanle ops that are not supported.
(I assume dsa checks if an ops is declared and not if it does return
ENOSUPP, so this is my concern your example)
