Hi Jakub,
1. I check the manual and implement of TC flower, it doesn't seems
    to support configuring flows steering to a specific queue.
2. Our hns3 driver has supported configuring some type of flows
    steering to a specific queue by ethtool -U command, many users
    have already use ethtool way.
3. In addition, if our driver supports TC flower to configure flows
    steering to a specific queue, can we allow user to simultaneously
    use TC flower and ethtool to configure flow rules? Could the rules
    configured by TC flower be queried by ethtool -u?
    If two ways can be existing, I think it is more complicated for
    driver to manage flow rules.
