optimize-dvr-flows

Registered by Xurong Yang on 2014-10-29

Currently, accurate ovs flows in terms of full mac are used to communicate among distributed router, but here comes problem : (1)the more distributed router node, the more flows; (2)different distributed router across DC cannot communicate through tunnel and additional operation under same mac prefix configuration. So it would be useful to shift the complete-matching of mac to fuzzy Matching, like prefix matching, reducing the number of flows and leading to communicate among different DC though configuring same mac prefix through tunnel.
