Here is the summary with links:
  - [net-next,1/3] net: switchdev: introduce helper for checking dynamically learned FDB entries
  - [net-next,2/3] net: switchdev: introduce a fanout helper for SWITCHDEV_FDB_{ADD,DEL}_TO_DEVICE
  - [net-next,3/3] net: dsa: use switchdev_handle_fdb_{add,del}_to_device

You are awesome, thank you!
