Currently, there are coverity defect warnings as blow:
Coverity issue:
  In nic_stats_clear function:
    CID 290021 (#1 of 1): Argument cannot be negative (NEGATIVE_RETURNS)
    5. negative_returns: ret is passed to a parameter that cannot be
       negative.

    CID 289974 (#1 of 1): Argument cannot be negative (NEGATIVE_RETURNS)
    6. negative_returns: ret is passed to a parameter that cannot be
       negative.

  In nic_xstats_clear function:
    CID 289985 (#1 of 1): Argument cannot be negative (NEGATIVE_RETURNS)
    5. negative_returns: ret is passed to a parameter that cannot be
       negative.

    CID 289850 (#1 of 1): Argument cannot be negative (NEGATIVE_RETURNS)
    6. negative_returns: ret is passed to a parameter that cannot be
       negative.

This patch fixes them by passing '-ret' to the function strerror() when ret
is negative.

Fixes: af75078fece3 ("first public release")
Fixes: 9eb974221f44 ("app/testpmd: fix statistics after reset")

It was the commit da328f7f115a ("ethdev: change xstats reset function to return int") introduced this defect in nic_xstats_clear() function.
Not the "first public release" commit. :)

The patch looks good to me.

Thanks,
Phil

I guess these coverity IDs are from the internal coverity, because I can't find
them in the public coverity.
If it is internal, not sure about the benefit of documenting them in the commit
log, since no one except huawei can access them. What do you think to remove all
above reference?

Although in practice this may be the case, the 'rte_eth_stats_get()' function
documentation doesn't guarantee that return value will be negative, it says:

"
 * @return
 *   Zero if successful. Non-zero otherwise
"

To be accurate, what do you think to adding a negative check for 'ret' before
doing '-ret'?

Yes, these are internal covertiy defects information. Maybe we can remove
internal coverity CID xxxx and reserve the description of the defect in the
commit log.

By the way,  when we access the "View defects" on the page of the public 
coverity
https://scan.coverity.com/projects/dpdk-data-plane-development-kit?tab=overview 

, The browser prompts HTTP ERROR 403.

OK, we will add a negative check in V2.

Can you please try a few times, I am also getting same error time to time but it
works after some tr.

And when it is successful, I have following URL, not sure if it works but you
can try this too:
https://scan4.coverity.com/reports.htm#v22369/p10075
