"setup" => "set up" since it's a verb.
I would put "ovs-ofctl dump-flows" in bold instead of quotes.

I'm not sure that I follow the logic of the second sentence.  I
would probably say something like, "Flows set up by mechanisms
such as in-band control and fail-open are hidden from the
controller since it is not allowed to modify or override them."
But documenting it is better than not documenting it, so I'm
happy with whatever you want to push here; it's not worth it to
go back and forth quibbling with wording
