Why should there be a difference?

The class passed to both ->dump and ->dump_stats is not a classid but
a qdisc-internal identifier (pointer, integer, whatever) which comes
from either ->get or ->walk, and thus is valid unless these functions
have bugs. Your check would cover the bug up and has no other purpose.
