For the hardware offloading piece in particular, I would take a look
at the discussion that has been going on in the netdev mailing list. I
think the general consensus (to the extent that there is one) is that
the hardware offload interface should be a block outside of OVS and
then OVS (mostly likely from userspace) configures it.
