enum flow_action_stats_type {
    FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_DISABLED=0,
    FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_IMMEDIATE=BIT(0),
    FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_DELAYED=BIT(1),
    FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_ANY=(FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_IMMEDIATE |
                                   FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_DELAYED),
};

It's not a requirement of the language for every value used withan
 enumeration to be a defined enumerator value, so if someone ends up
 putting (FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_FOO | FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_TYPE_BAR)
 into (say) a driver that supports only FOO and BAR, that will work
 just fine.  I don't see what problem you expect to occur here.
