Hi David,

These two patches address some real world use cases of the DSA master and slave
network devices.

You have already seen patch 1 previously and you rejected it since my
explanations were not good enough to provide a justification as to why it is
useful, hopefully this time my explanation is better.

Patch 2 solves a different, yet very real problem as well at the bridge layer
when using DSA network devices.


Florian Fainelli (2):
  net: ipv4: handle DSA enabled master network devices
  net: bridge: reject DSA-enabled master netdevices as bridge members
