In the majority of cases, I agree---however there are a couple of specific
tests in tests/dpif-netdev.at that would benefit from having datapath flow
format, as a way to detect whether flow translation is correct or not.
Can we somehow provide the option to log these in full format?

(The tests are "dpif-netdev - miss upcall key matches flow_install and
"dpif-netdev - miss upcall key matches flow_dump".)
