Sorry for bringing up a not really unrelated question in the thread,

For the hns3 hw mac table, it seems the hns3 hw is pretty simple, it mainly
contain the port bitmaps of a mac address, then the hw can forward the packet
based on the dst mac' port bitamp.

It seems a litte hard to match to the dpipe API the last time I tried to
use dpipe API to dump that.

So maybe it would be good to have the support of table dumping (both structured
and binary table) for health API natively, so that we use it to dump some hw
table for both driver and user triggering cases.

I am not sure if other driver has the above requirement, and if the requirement
makes any sense?
