When a port is added to a bridge, then the port gets in promisc mode.
But in our case the HW has bridge capabilities so it is not required to
set the port in promisc mode.
But if someone else requires the port to be in promisc mode (tcpdump or
any other application) then I would like to set the port in promisc
mode.
In previous emails Andrew came with the suggestion to look at
dev->promiscuity and check if the port is a bridge port. Using this
information I could see when to add the port in promisc mode. He also
suggested to add a new switchdev call(maybe I missunderstood him, or I
have done it at the wrong place) in case there are no callbacks in the
driver to get this information.

No, I just wanted to know when to update the HW to set the port in
promisc mode.
