The action entries in nft didn't set the hw_stats and the vlaue is 0.


The following function check the hw_stats should contain FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_DELAYED_BIT.

flow_action_hw_stats_check(flow_action, extack, FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_DELAYED_BIT)



Maybe the following patch is better?


__flow_action_hw_stats_check(const struct flow_action *action,
                             struct netlink_ext_ack *extack,
                             bool check_allow_bit,
                             enum flow_action_hw_stats_bit allow_bit)
{
        const struct flow_action_entry *action_entry;

        if (!flow_action_has_entries(action))
                return true;
        if (!flow_action_mixed_hw_stats_check(action, extack))
                return false;
        action_entry = flow_action_first_entry_get(action);
        if (!check_allow_bit &&
            action_entry->hw_stats != FLOW_ACTION_HW_STATS_ANY) {
                NL_SET_ERR_MSG_MOD(extack, "Driver supports only default HW stats type \"any\"");
                return false;
-        } else if (check_allow_bit &&
+        } else if (check_allow_bit && action_entry->hw_stats &&
                   !(action_entry->hw_stats & BIT(allow_bit))) {
                NL_SET_ERR_MSG_MOD(extack, "Driver does not support selected HW stats type");
                return false;
        }   
        return true;
}
