net: mscc: ocelot: fix backwards compatibility with single-chain tc-flower offload

ACL rules can be offloaded to VCAP IS2 either through chain 0, or, since
the blamed commit, through a chain index whose number encodes a specific
PAG (Policy Action Group) and lookup number.

The chain number is translated through ocelot_chain_to_pag() into a PAG,
and through ocelot_chain_to_lookup() into a lookup number.

The problem with the blamed commit is that the above 2 functions don't
have special treatment for chain 0. So ocelot_chain_to_pag(0) returns
filter->pag = 224, which is in fact -32, but the "pag" field is an u8.

So we end up programming the hardware with VCAP IS2 entries having a PAG
of 224. But the way in which the PAG works is that it defines a subset
of VCAP IS2 filters which should match on a packet. The default PAG is
0, and previous VCAP IS1 rules (which we offload using 'goto') can
modify it. So basically, we are installing filters with a PAG on which
no packet will ever match. This is the hardware equivalent of adding
filters to a chain which has no 'goto' to it.

Restore the previous functionality by making ACL filters offloaded to
chain 0 go to PAG 0 and lookup number 0. The choice of PAG is clearly
correct, but the choice of lookup number isn't "as before" (which was to
leave the lookup a "don't care"). However, lookup 0 should be fine,
since even though there are ACL actions (policers) which have a
requirement to be used in a specific lookup, that lookup is 0.
