mvsw61xx.ko ghost driver - switch not working
- tested vanilla medkit 3.11.2 & 3.10.8 & 3.10 & 3.9 and all exhibit the same issue/outcome
- cannot be tested with 4.HBD since the driver is not yet available in the base package

Package kmod-switch-mvsw61xx (4.4.169+2-1-7bc33afbb1b35f5830b2b1b42c9cd8a0-2) installed in root is up to date.
For one why should it be installed in root? And in any case the module is not traceable in either
/usr/lib/~ where it would be expected.
If the driver would be loaded/working
ls -l /sys/class/net would/should print something like
eth0.1 -> …/…/devices/virtual/net/eth0.1 eth0.2 -> …/…/devices/virtual/net/eth0.2
which however it does not. (https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/network/vlan/switch_configuration)
ifconfig: eth0.1: error fetching interface information: Device not found
ip l show eth0.1
Device "eth0.1" does not exist.
Found: switch0 - 10.mvsw61xx
Apprently the module did not compile or is somehow else missing but for sure it is not loaded/running and thus rendering the fully manageable Gbit switch chip useless.
