hmm. is this the only thing blocked you from offloading indirect from bond?
when u add the rule from bond like this this also need to make sure the rule
is duplicated to both eswitches in is_peer_flow_needed().

today we support bond offloading by using shared tc block.
i.e. you add a shared tc block to bond and its slaves.
then all rules you add to the shared block instead of a specific interface.

this is also how OVS currently offload the rules with bond.
when u add a bond port, ovs adds a shared tc block to the slaves.
then new rules added to the tc block instead of the bond interface.
