From: Vladimir Oltean <vladimir.oltean at nxp.com>

This is my 5th stab at creating a list of unicast and multicast
addresses that the DSA CPU ports must trap. I am reusing a lot of
Tobias's work which he submitted here:

My additions to Tobias' work come in the form of taking some care that
additions and removals of host addresses are properly balanced, so that
we can do reference counting on them for cross-chip setups and multiple
bridges spanning the same switch (I am working on an NXP board where
both are real requirements).

During the last attempted submission of multiple CPU ports for DSA:

it became clear that the concept of multiple CPU ports would not be
compatible with the idea of address learning on those CPU ports (when
those CPU ports are statically assigned to user ports, not in a LAG)
unless the switch supports complete FDB isolation, which most switches
do not. So DSA needs to manage in software all addresses that are
installed on the CPU port(s), which is what this patch set does.

Compared to all earlier attempts, this series does not fiddle with how
DSA operates the ports in standalone mode at all, just when bridged.
We need to sort that out properly, then any optimization that comes in
standalone mode (i.e. IFF_UNICAST_FLT) can come later.

Changes in v5:
- added READ_ONCE and WRITE_ONCE for fdb->dst
- removed a paranoid WARN_ON in DSA
- added some documentation regarding how 'bridge fdb' is supposed to be
  used with DSA

Tobias Waldekranz (2):
  net: bridge: switchdev: send FDB notifications for host addresses
  net: dsa: include bridge addresses which are local in the host fdb

Vladimir Oltean (13):
  net: bridge: use READ_ONCE() and WRITE_ONCE() compiler barriers for
  net: bridge: allow br_fdb_replay to be called for the bridge device
  net: dsa: delete dsa_legacy_fdb_add and dsa_legacy_fdb_del
  net: dsa: introduce dsa_is_upstream_port and dsa_switch_is_upstream_of
  net: dsa: introduce a separate cross-chip notifier type for host MDBs
  net: dsa: reference count the MDB entries at the cross-chip notifier
  net: dsa: introduce a separate cross-chip notifier type for host FDBs
  net: dsa: reference count the FDB addresses at the cross-chip notifier
  net: dsa: install the host MDB and FDB entries in the master's RX
  net: dsa: sync static FDB entries on foreign interfaces to hardware
  net: dsa: include fdb entries pointing to bridge in the host fdb list
  net: dsa: ensure during dsa_fdb_offload_notify that dev_hold and
    dev_put are on the same dev
  net: dsa: replay the local bridge FDB entries pointing to the bridge
    dev too
