[ovs-dev] [PATCH net-next v3 0/2] openvswitch: add IPv6 tunneling support

This builds on the previous work that added IPv6 support to lwtunnels and
adds IPv6 tunneling support to ovs.

To use IPv6 tunneling, there needs to be a metadata based tunnel net_device
created and added to the ovs bridge. Currently, only vxlan is supported by
the kernel, with geneve to follow shortly. There's no need nor intent to add
a support for this into the vport-vxlan (etc.) compat layer.

v3: dropped the last two patches added in v2.

  openvswitch: add tunnel protocol to sw_flow_key
  openvswitch: netlink attributes for IPv6 tunneling
