Agree, it makes sense.

Each rule has a different policer assigned by HW. Do you mean the police.index should be checked here ?

This is HW traffic class used for packets that are trapped to CPU port. The usage is as the following:

tc qdisc add dev DEV clsact
tc filter add dev DEV ingress flower skip_sw dst_mac 00:AA:AA:AA:AA:00 hw_tc 1 action trap

This is not support at this moment by the driver, so it is always zero now.
