Firstly, those functions you list are ops functions, while what is in
switchdev.{c,h} is not, secondly the functions in switchdev.{c,h} are 
first to send switchdev messages like SWITCHDEV_FDB_ADD_TO_BRIDGE 

Furthermore I think that chip.c is bloated, but I also do plan to add 
to switchdev.{c,h}, and there can be others adding in the future...
