This object is only used to match and not set so
why do we need the union? I understand that later when reporting to the SFT in the application layer
sometimes you will get zone while other time you will get fid.
From rte flow you are matching on given object which is 32 bit.
What are the matchable  fields? (fid / zone / user_data / fid_valid ... )
Do you think that some of the times the match will be on he fid other on the zone?
If so they should not be union.
I think zone is the responsibility of the application to save and to match. So I don't see why it is
needed here.
