I missed that indeed, how would you feel about splitting the attribute
setting into different phases:

- checking that the attribute setting is supported (caller context, so
possibly atomic)
- allocating and committing resources (deferred context)

For pretty much any DSA driver, we will have to be in sleepable context
anyway because of MDIO, SPI, I2C, whatever transport layer.

Not sure how to best approach this now...
