Sven, there is a standard ethtool register dump interface that can be
used to provide register dumps, if necessary, that might fit your use case.

Aside from the phy_read/write, port_enable/disable, you will likely need
to have a get_tag_protocol() implementation returning
DSA_TAG_PROTO_NONE, and a setup() operation, other should be entirely
optional for now.

Out of curiosity, are there any break out boards with a KS8995 switch
available that we could e.g: plug to a Raspberry Pi or any similar board?

Yes, this would be good to keep alive, the patches look good, they just
need to get in now.
