hi Vladimir,
you can refer to " MAN Access Switch Example" in VSC99599_1_00_TS.pdf,
By testing the case, if don't set VLAN_AWARE_ENA=0 for customer's port swp0,
the Q-in-Q feature can't work well.

In order to distinguish the port for customer and for ISP, I add devlink command,
Actually, I can modify the driver config directly, not using devlink, but it will be not compatible with current
code and user guide.
