Subject: [PATCH net] net: sched: don't use tc_action->order during action dump

Function tcf_action_dump() relies on tc_action->order field when starting
nested nla to send action data to userspace. This approach breaks in
several cases:

- When multiple filters point to same shared action, tc_action->order field
  is overwritten each time it is attached to filter. This causes filter
  dump to output action with incorrect attribute for all filters that have
  the action in different position (different order) from the last set
  tc_action->order value.

- When action data is displayed using tc action API (RTM_GETACTION), action
  order is overwritten by tca_action_gd() according to its position in
  resulting array of nl attributes, which will break filter dump for all
  filters attached to that shared action that expect it to have different
  order value.

Don't rely on tc_action->order when dumping actions. Set nla according to
action position in resulting array of actions instead.
