Subject: Need a creative way to negate u32 filter matches

Hello, all.  I understand there is no direct way to negate a u32 match.
I have a setup where I am redirecting all ingress traffic from the
physical interface to an ifb interface with a u32 match u8 0 0 action
mirred egress redirect filter attached to ffff:

I do not want to send ingress ESP packets to the IFB interface.  How do
I exclude those?
I tried creating a filter with a lower prio and added before the above
rule which matches ESP packets and does nothing with them (action pass)
in the hope that it would be the first match and ESP packets would then
not be matched against the second filter.  That does not appear to be
working from tc -s filter.  The rule is hit, the match succeeds, but the
success count is 0 and I see the filter on the IFB interface which
identifies ESP packets is successfully being hit.

How do I redirect all packets EXCEPT ESP packets to an IFB interface?
Thanks - John
