It looks like something happened and the essence of this series, aka
this patch:
https://patchwork.kernel.org/project/netdevbpf/patch/20211126172845.3149260-5-vladimir.oltean@nxp.com/
did not or could not be backported.

In this case I am afraid that all the patches below are useless and can
be dropped:

[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.4 8/9] net: ptp: add a definition for the UDP port for IEEE 1588 general messages
[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.9 11/12] net: ptp: add a definition for the UDP port for IEEE 1588 general messages
[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.14 13/14] net: ptp: add a definition for the UDP port for IEEE 1588 general messages
[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 16/17] net: ptp: add a definition for the UDP port for IEEE 1588 general messages
[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 24/25] net: ptp: add a definition for the UDP port for IEEE 1588 general messages
[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.10 42/43] net: ptp: add a definition for the UDP port for IEEE 1588 general messages
[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.15 66/68] net: ptp: add a definition for the UDP port for IEEE 1588 general messages
[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.15 65/68] net: mscc: ocelot: create a function that replaces an existing VCAP filter

Thanks.
