+==========================================
+Broadcom RoboSwitch Ethernet switch driver
+==========================================
+
+The Broadcom RoboSwitch Ethernet switch family is used in quite a range of
+xDSL router, cable modems and other multimedia devices.
+
+The actual implementation supports the devices BCM5325E, BCM5365, BCM539x,
+BCM53115 and BCM53125 as well as BCM63XX.
+
+Implementation details
+======================
+
+The driver is located in ``drivers/net/dsa/b53/`` and is implemented as a
+DSA driver; see ``Documentation/networking/dsa/dsa.rst`` for details on the
+subsystem and what it provides.
+
+The switch is, if possible, configured to enable a Broadcom specific 4-bytes
+switch tag which gets inserted by the switch for every packet forwarded to the
+CPU interface, conversely, the CPU network interface should insert a similar
+tag for packets entering the CPU port. The tag format is described in
+``net/dsa/tag_brcm.c``.
+
+The configuration of the device depends on whether or not tagging is
+supported.
+
+The interface names and example network configuration are used according the
+configuration described in the :ref:`dsa-config-showcases`.
+
+Configuration with tagging support
+----------------------------------
+
+The tagging based configuration is desired. It is not specific to the b53
+DSA driver and will work like all DSA drivers which supports tagging.
+
+See :ref:`dsa-tagged-configuration`.
+
+Configuration without tagging support
+-------------------------------------
+
+Older models (5325, 5365) support a different tag format that is not supported
+yet. 539x and 531x5 require managed mode and some special handling, which is
+also not yet supported. The tagging support is disabled in these cases and the
+switch need a different configuration.
+
+The configuration slightly differ from the :ref:`dsa-vlan-configuration`.
+
+The b53 tags the CPU port in all VLANs, since otherwise any PVID untagged
+VLAN programming would basically change the CPU port's default PVID and make
+it untagged, undesirable.
+
+In difference to the configuration described in :ref:`dsa-vlan-configuration`
+the default VLAN 1 has to be removed from the slave interface configuration in
+single port and gateway configuration, while there is no need to add an extra
+VLAN configuration in the bridge showcase.
+
+single port
+~~~~~~~~~~~
+The configuration can only be set up via VLAN tagging and bridge setup.
+By default packages are tagged with vid 1:
+
+.. code-block:: sh
+
+  # tag traffic on CPU port
+  ip link add link eth0 name eth0.1 type vlan id 1
+  ip link add link eth0 name eth0.2 type vlan id 2
+  ip link add link eth0 name eth0.3 type vlan id 3
+
+  # The master interface needs to be brought up before the slave ports.
+  ip link set eth0 up
+  ip link set eth0.1 up
+  ip link set eth0.2 up
+  ip link set eth0.3 up
+
+  # bring up the slave interfaces
