So the bug is really that an automatically learned address is promoted
to a static entry, right?

/ | \
swp0 swp1 eth0

1. A station starts out connected to swp0. An ATU entry is added by the
switch via normal SA learning.

2. The station moves to eth0.

3. DSA reacts to the event on the foreign interface, reading back the
entry from (1), adds the CPU port and _crucially_ modifies the state
from MV88E6XXX_G1_ATU_DATA_STATE_UC_AGE_[1-7] to static.

4. If the station now moves to swp1, you get the ATU violation.

IMO, the condition should be changed to:

/* User-configured entries take precedence over learned entries. */
if (is_unicast_ether_addr(addr) &&
(entry.state >= MV88E6XXX_G1_ATU_DATA_STATE_UC_AGE_1_OLDEST) &&
(entry.state <= MV88E6XXX_G1_ATU_DATA_STATE_UC_AGE_7_NEWEST))

This should solve the issue discussed here, and it makes sure to keep
the ATU in sync with the FDB config, no matter how crazy the setup is.
