See my reply in patch 6, I may be missing something, but once
dst->rdcv() has been called, skb->dev points to the slave network device
which already contains the switch port and switch information in
dsa_slave_priv, so that should lift the need for asking the individual
taggers' rcv() callback to tell us about it.
