Message: ofproto: Fix for frequent invalidation of mega flows for push actions

When a packet is processed by the slow path and the matching OpenFlow
rule has actions like push_mpls/set_field and push_vlan/set_field, the
ofproto layer un-wildcards the MPLS and VLAN match fields in the megaflow
entry that it plans to install. However, when the megaflow entry is
actually installed, all protocol match fields that are not present in the
packet are wildcarded. Thus, the wildcard bits in the installed megaflow
entry could be different from the bits originally generated by the ofproto

When the revalidator thread validates a megaflow, it will first query the
ofproto layer to get the wildcard bits and then compare it against the
wildcard bits in the megaflow. If the bits are different the entry will be
removed.  A subsequent packet will again result in the same megaflow entry
being installed only for it to be removed by the revalidator thread. This
cycle will continue and will significantly degrade performance.

This patch fixes the issue by wildcarding flow fields which are not present
in the incoming packet.
