What about the rate estimator and basic stats in pkt_act.h? tca_gen
requires at least basic,queue and rate_est for me to compile.

That's a lot of duplicated code which could be avoided easly. It's
only a cosmetic thing but I don't see any reason for duplicating code :->
So this would be my way of doing it:
call get_stats() and let the action module dump additional stats
I'd also suggest to make a new TLV type TCA_ACT_STATS and not reuse
Another issue... do we want the compatibility stuff and provide the
old tc_stats? I'd say no but it's your call.

Sure. Always planning ahead.
