Please refrain from reviewing this patch temporarily.

Given recent changes to master, do you think it makes sense to encode
the cookie directly in the packet_in structure, or to encode it as
part of the NXM in the packet_in structure using NXM_NX_COOKIE.
Furthermore, I wonder if it makes sense to remove the table_id from
the match structure, knowing that we could encode it with an
NXM_NX_TABLE_ID in the future if someone needs it.  Opinions?
