Could we perhaps open-code these from the drivers themselves? There's
hardly any added value in DSA providing a "helper" for creation of
devlink resources (regions, shared buffers, etc).

Take the ocelot/felix driver for example. It is a DSA driver whose core
functionality is provided by drivers/net/ethernet/mscc/ocelot*.c, which
is non-DSA code. If it were to implement devlink regions, presumably
that code would live in drivers/net/ethernet/mscc/ and not in
drivers/net/dsa/.

Thanks,
