Sry, I've missed you mail.

As it's pretty big change the idea is to keep both drivers at least for sometime.
Step 1: add new driver and enable it on one platform. Do announcement.
Step 2: switch all one-port and dual mac drivers to the new driver
Step 3: switch all other platform to cpsw switchdev and deprecate old driver.

Best regards,
