Hi Egil, Juergen

The other tag drivers do:

if (source_port >= ds->num_ports || !ds->ports[source_port].netdev)
return NULL;

or just

if (!ds->ports[port].netdev)
return NULL;

The first version is the safest, since a malicious switch could return
port 42, and you are accessing way off the end of ds->ports[]. It does
however require you call dsa_switch_alloc() with the correct number of
ports.
