SubjectRe: [PATCH v3 net-next 14/24] net: dsa: Introduce driver for NXP SJA1105 5-port L2 switch
Hi Andrew,

All I'm saying is that at this point in time (patch 14/24), the driver
is being introduced with DSA_TAG_PROTO_NONE. Then support for traffic
and switch tagging is added later on (18/24). I was just explaining
what can be done with the driver up to this point in the patchset.

Thanks,
-Vladimir
