A helper taking nla_put_br_flag(port, skb, attrtype, brflag) would simplify
this code a lot.

I assume the yet unfinished netdev_sw_port_set_attr() will call
netdev_sw_port_stp_update()?

I'm not sure I understand the || here. HW_OFFLOAD enabled on the
net_device is a conditional for all netdev_sw_port_set_attr() calls
and at the same time implies BRPORT_HW_OFFLOAD on all attributes.
As I read this code now, I don't see how you would offload individual
features to hardware.

Let's not add more non type safe macros. A static inline seems like
a better fit here.
