Subject: [PATCH net-next v4 0/3] I3C MCTP net driver

This series adds an I3C transport for the kernel's MCTP network
protocol. MCTP is a communication protocol between system components
(BMCs, drives, NICs etc), with higher level protocols such as NVMe-MI or
PLDM built on top of it (in userspace). It runs over various transports
such as I2C, PCIe, or I3C.

The mctp-i3c driver follows a similar approach to the kernel's existing
mctp-i2c driver, creating a "mctpi3cX" network interface for each
numbered I3C bus. Busses opt in to support by adding a "mctp-controller"
property to the devicetree:

&i3c0 {

The driver will bind to MCTP class devices (DCR 0xCC) that are on a
supported I3C bus. Each bus is represented by a `struct mctp_i3c_bus`
that keeps state for the network device. An individual I3C device
(struct mctp_i3c_device) performs operations using the "parent"
mctp_i3c_bus object. The I3C notify/enumeration patch is needed so that
the mctp-i3c driver can handle creating/removing mctp_i3c_bus objects as

The mctp-i3c driver is using the Provisioned ID as an identifier for
target I3C devices (the neighbour address), as that will be more stable
than the I3C dynamic address. The driver internally translates that to a
dynamic address for bus operations.

The driver has been tested using an AST2600 platform. A remote endpoint 
has been tested against QEMU, as well as using the target mode support 
in Aspeed's vendor tree.

I3C maintainers have acked merging this through net-next tree.




- Add asm/unaligned.h include


- Use get_unaligned_be48()
- Use kthread_run()
- Don't set net namespace


- Rebased to net-next
- Removed unnecessary pr_ printing
- Fixed reverse christmas tree ordering
- Reworded DT property description to match I2C
