SubjectRe: [PATCH net-next 00/11] Marvell Prestera driver implementation of devlink functionality.

As we discussed the storm control (BUM) done via devlink port params topic, and agreed that it shouldn't be done using the devlink API itself, there's an open question i'd like to address: the patch series included, for what i think, list of needed and benefitial changes, and those are the following patches:

> Oleksandr Mazur (2):
...
> net: core: devlink: add port_params_ops for devlink port parameters altering
> drivers: net: netdevsim: add devlink port params usage

> Sudarsana Reddy Kalluru (1):
> net: core: devlink: add apis to publish/unpublish port params

So, should i create a new patch series that would include all of them?

Because in that case the series itself would lack an actual HW usage of it. The only usage would be limited to the netdevsim driver.
