Seems a bit wasteful to add a rmu_reg field for each statistics member 
when there are only 6 STATS_TYPE_PORT that could be read over RMU.

Maybe what you could do is that the offset in the "reg" member could be 
split into a lower half that is used to encore the existing offset, and 
you use the upper half to encode the RMU-offset.
