How many ipqess devices are there in a system? The netdev notifier
should be a singleton, meaning it should be registered at module_init()
and unregistered at module_exit(). You can then get the "ess" pointer as
netdev_priv(dev), once you ensure that dev->netdev_ops is what you expect.

The code is already wrong: you take *ess from the &ess->netdev_notifier
reference, then you increment ess->dsa_ports based on the sole condition
that "dev" (the interface on which the notification was already emitted)
was an ess netdevice. But the "dev" pointer could be ess1, and the "ess"
pointer could be the netdev_priv(ess0). Your logic would increment the
dsa_ports of ess0 when a DSA switch joined ess1 (because all notifier
handlers see the event).
