Ah, right you are, thanks. The complete fix is not super trivial, as it 
needs some more surgery to tc_dump_qdisc_root(), tc_dump_tclass_root() and 
qdisc_match_from_root() (see 69012ae42 for some details).

There are two options:

- this gets fixed in two phases, in first everything *but* noop qdisc gets 
  dumped (in the "give me everything" dump) and later we finalize it by
  teaching the above functions about noop_qdisc as well

- I extend this patchset to handle noop qdisc from the very beginning; 
  I am unlikely to find time for this during coming weeks though. But OTOH
  this whole thing is very low priority anyway

What do you think?

Thanks,
