Rather than adding another op, use attr->flags and define:

#define SWITCHDEV_F_DEFERRED          BIT(x)

So we get:

void br_set_state(struct net_bridge_port *p, unsigned int state)
{
        struct switchdev_attr attr = {
                .id = SWITCHDEV_ATTR_ID_PORT_STP_STATE,
+              .flags = SWITCHDEV_F_DEFERRED,
                .u.stp_state = state,
        };
        int err;

        p->state = state;
        err = switchdev_port_attr_set(p->dev, &attr);
        if (err && err != -EOPNOTSUPP)
                br_warn(p->br, "error setting offload STP state on
port %u(%s)\n",
                                (unsigned int) p->port_no,
p->dev->name);
}

(And add obj->flags to do the same).
