ofproto: Don't send OpenFlow flow expirations hidden rules.
We were reporting flow expirations for the hidden exact match flows
with the stats set to zero.  These are an implementation detail and
can confuse controllers, so don't report them.

ofproto: Distinguish stats from before and after action changes.
When a rule is revalidated and the actions change don't lump all
the stats together.  This will clear the stats in the datapath
and send a NetFlow expiration message.  This could already happen
before in certain circumstances so this change makes it more
