Don't you think we may eventually may need xmit / handle_frame ops to be
a part of macsec_ops?

That way software macsec could be extract to just another type of offload.
The drawback of current code is it doesn't show explicitly the path of
offloaded packets. It is hidden in `handle_not_macsec` and in
`macsec_start_xmit` branch. This makes incorrect counters to tick (see my below
comment)

Another thing is that both xmit / macsec_handle_frame can't now be customized
by device driver. But this may be required.
We for example have usecases and HW features to allow specific flows to bypass
macsec encryption. This is normally used for macsec key control protocols,
identified by ethertype. Your phy is also capable on that as I see.

Declared, but not used?

Here you use same `if` for sw and hw flows, this making `OutPktsUntagged`
counter invalid.

Reverse Christmas tree is normally a formatting requirement where possible.

There is no need to do this search loop if `macsec_get_ops(..) == NULL` ?
So you can extract this check before `for_each_net` for SW macsec...
