I reworked the commit description about the What and thought it was
enough. Do you need a cover letter to describe it more?

The Why is:
Configure the host port of the switch to match the host interface
settings. This is useful when the switch is directly connected to the
host MAC interface.
Thank you for reviewing the patch.
