It is great to see a new switch from Microchip being submitted for
review. One thing that has bothered me as a DSA maintainer before though
is that we have seen Microchip contribute new DSA drivers which are
always welcome, however the maintenance and bug fixing of these drivers
was spotty, thus leading to external contributors to take on the tasks
of fixing bugs. Do you have a stronger commitment now to stay involved
with reviewing/fixing bugs affecting Microchip DSA drivers and to a
larger extent the framework itself?

Could you also feed back to your hardware organization to settle on a
tag format that is not a snowflake? Almost *every* switch you have has a
different tagging format, this is absurd. All other vendors in tree have
been able to settle on at most 2 or 3 different tagging formats over
their switching product life span (for some vendors this dates back 20
years ago).

I will provide a more detailed review later on.
