I have discussed it with Ido, it doesn't fit to merge with metrics:

1. These counters are maintained by devlink unlike metrics which are 
read by the driver from HW.

2. The metrics counters push string name, while here I use enum.

However, I did add another level as you suggested here for option to 
future stats that may fit.
