[PATCH net] prestera: matchall: do not rollback if rule exists

From: Maksym Glubokiy

From: Serhiy Boiko <serhiy.boiko@xxxxxxxxxxx>

If you try to create a 'mirror' ACL rule on a port that already has a
mirror rule, prestera_span_rule_add() will fail with EEXIST error.

This forces rollback procedure which destroys existing mirror rule on
hardware leaving it visible in linux.

Add an explicit check for EEXIST to prevent the deletion of the existing
rule but keep user seeing error message:

$ tc filter add dev sw1p1 ... skip_sw action mirred egress mirror dev sw1p2
$ tc filter add dev sw1p1 ... skip_sw action mirred egress mirror dev sw1p3
RTNETLINK answers: File exists
We have an error talking to the kernel
