[Bridge] [PATCH v5 net-next 3/5] net: dsa: add support for bridge TX forwarding offload

For a DSA switch, to offload the forwarding process of a bridge device
means to send the packets coming from the software bridge as data plane
packets. This is contrary to everything that DSA has done so far,
because the current taggers only know to send control packets (ones that
target a specific destination port), whereas data plane packets are
supposed to be forwarded according to the FDB lookup, much like packets
ingressing on any regular ingress port. If the FDB lookup process
returns multiple destination ports (flooding, multicast), then
replication is also handled by the switch hardware - the bridge only
sends a single packet and avoids the skb_clone().

DSA keeps for each bridge port a zero-based index (the number of the
bridge). Multiple ports performing TX forwarding offload to the same
bridge have the same dp->bridge_num value, and ports not offloading the
TX data plane of a bridge have dp->bridge_num = -1.

The tagger can check if the packet that is being transmitted on has
skb->offload_fwd_mark = true or not. If it does, it can be sure that the
packet belongs to the data plane of a bridge, further information about
which can be obtained based on dp->bridge_dev and dp->bridge_num.
It can then compose a DSA tag for injecting a data plane packet into
that bridge number.

For the switch driver side, we offer two new dsa_switch_ops methods,
called .port_bridge_fwd_offload_{add,del}, which are modeled after
.port_bridge_{join,leave}.
These methods are provided in case the driver needs to configure the
hardware to treat packets coming from that bridge software interface as
data plane packets. The switchdev <-> bridge interaction happens during
the netdev_master_upper_dev_link() call, so to switch drivers, the
effect is that the .port_bridge_fwd_offload_add() method is called
immediately after .port_bridge_join().

If the bridge number exceeds the number of bridges for which the switch
driver can offload the TX data plane (and this includes the case where
the driver can offload none), DSA falls back to simply returning
tx_fwd_offload = false in the switchdev_bridge_port_offload() call.

v2->v3:
- signal the offloading capability via switchdev_bridge_port_offload()
- drop "bool bridge_fwd_offload" from the tagger
- drop "struct dsa_bridge_fwd_accel_priv" from struct dsa_port and
  replace it with a simple "int bridge_num"
- drop .crosschip_bridge_fwd_offload_{add,del}()
- drop the DSA_NOTIFIER_BRIDGE_FWD_OFFLOAD_{ADD,DEL} cross-chip notifier
  and call the driver directly on the port
v3->v4:
- use dsa_tree_find_bridge_dev() in the unprepare code path to allow the
  bridge_num to be properly reused when there is no port offloading a
  given bridge anymore
- drop the stray netif_set_real_num_tx_queues() change from v2
- properly call dsa_port_bridge_tx_fwd_unprepare() instead of prepare()
  in dsa_port_pre_bridge_leave()
- fix dp->bridge_num remaining -1 in dsa_port_bridge_tx_fwd_prepare() by
  removing the stray "int bridge_num" declaration which was shadowing
  the variable which had the function-wide scope
v4->v5:
- rename functions for naming consistency
- move dsa_port_bridge_tx_fwd_unoffload to dsa_port_bridge_leave instead
  of pre_leave, so that we won't have the problem with dp->bridge_dev
  still being populated
