This implies that all policy tables must be 'complete'.

strset_stringsets_policy[] for example is :

static const struct nla_policy strset_stringsets_policy[] = {
    [ETHTOOL_A_STRINGSETS_STRINGSET]    = { .type = NLA_NESTED },
};

So when later strset_parse_request() does :

req_info->counts_only = tb[ETHTOOL_A_STRSET_COUNTS_ONLY];

We have an out-of-bound access since ETHTOOL_A_STRSET_COUNTS_ONLY > ETHTOOL_A_STRINGSETS_STRINGSET

Not sure what was the expected type for this attribute, the kernel
only looks at its presence, not its value.
