In mf_mask_subfield_wc(), for MFF_IN_PORT and MFF_IN_PORT_OXM, I would
set the whole field unconditionally to all-1-bits.  (We don't allow
bitwise matching on input ports and I hope we never do.)  Same for
MFF_ETH_TYPE, although bitwise matching there is a little less crazy.

There's an extra space on this line:
        bitwise_one (&value, field->n_bytes, sf->ofs, sf->n_bits);
