> Can you hold on your developing work on KSZ8895 driver? I am afraid your effort may be in vain. We at Microchip are planning to release DSA drivers for all KSZ switches, starting at KSZ8795, then KSZ8895, and KSZ8863.

Well, thanks for heads up... but its too late to stop now. I already
have working code, without the advanced features.

I don't know how far away you are with the development. You may want
to start from my driver (but its probably too late now).

> The driver files all follow the structures of the current KSZ9477 DSA driver, and the file tag_ksz.c will be updated to handle the tail tag of different chips, which requires including the ksz_priv.h header. That is required nevertheless to support using the offload_fwd_mark indication.

Well, normally world can help with the testing, too. It would be nice
to see the code, as [RFC]. There's great chance that you'll have to
modify the code to adress review feedback, which is why seeing code
soon is useful.

Best regards,
