Hi Jiri

DSA has always returned the HW stats, i.e, ethtool -S shows the
counters the switch has for the port.

How do you expect ethtool to handle your change? ethtool -S will print
both sets? Or are you thinking of adding a new flag?

I'm just trying to understand the big picture, and how it affects DSA,
if at all.
