That's not in the kernel's uapi file (probably was forgotten), I
don't think we can just add it here.

That's quite complicated and I don't really see the benefit,
especially given that upper isn't used at all here. I'd just put the
union straight in sa_desc:

Only one of pn and xpn can be set, so that should be
	[ pn <u32> | pn64 <u64> ]

And salt is a hex string like key/keyid (it doesn't take the 0x
prefix).

I'd rather not add a default ssci at all. If the user didn't provide
it, don't add the attribute. That would allow us to test that part of
the uapi using iproute.

Same with the 'c == CMD_ADD' test: pass the attribute to the kernel if
they're provided, let the kernel decide.

I would also allow that to be empty, same as the ssci. Let the kernel
reject invalid requests.

This whole thing looks a bit over-complicated to me. Why not just put
'bool xpn = false;' in macsec_parse_opt() and match "xpn" on its own
(without "flags" in front of it) at the same level as cipher, icvlen,
etc?



I don't see anything on the print side in your patch. PNs provided by
userspace can be 64b with XPN, and SSCIs are also part of the dump and
need to be handled.
