Hi Andrew,

Creating a bool ds->vlan_filtering wouldn't make a lot of sense for
the majority of drivers.
Additionally in my sja1105_filter() function, that would require me to
pass through one more pointer (dev->dsa_ptr->vlan_filtering vs
dev->dsa_ptr->*ds->*vlan_filtering) to reach the same information.
I don't think that keeping it in cpu_dp->vlan_filtering has any
semantical overlap with anything else that might appear in the future.
And I don't know why the cpu_dp pointer is const. In the
dsa_switch_tree it isn't.

Thanks,
-Vladimir
