Hi all,

This patch series finishes by the removal of switchdev_ops. To get there
we need to do a few things:

- get rid of the one and only call to switchdev_port_attr_get() which is
  used to fetch the device's bridge port flags capabilities, instead we
  can just check what flags are being programmed during the prepare

- once we get rid of getting switchdev port attributes we convert the
  setting of such attributes using a blocking notifier

And then remove switchdev_ops completely.

Please review and let me know what you think!

David, I would like to get Ido's feedback on this to make sure I did not
miss something, thank you!

Changes in v3:
- dropped patches removing te need to get the attribute since we
  still need that in order to support different sleeping vs.
  non-sleeping contexts

Changes in v2:
- fixed bisectability issues in patch #15
- added Acked-by from Jiri where necessary
- fixed a few minor issues according to Jiri's feedback:
	- rename port_attr_event -> port_attr_set_event
	- moved SWITCHDEV_PORT_ATTR_SET closer to other blocking events
