Dave,

This is the last patchset in my attempt to clean up traffic
control statistics. It converts the action and policer code
to the gnet_stats API.

I decided to not provide backward compatibility for action
statistics and introduce a new TLV type TCA_ACT_STATS for them
in order to get some consistency and be prepared if we ever
introduce statistics to classifiers. This was approved by Jamal.

Shall I mark the old estimator and statistic API as __deprecated
or remove it right away?

Cheers
