[ovs-dev] PassiveStream class in IDL library doesn't support AF_INET socket

Hi ,
We thought of using ovs IDL library for implementing the L2gateway in openstack with ovsdb hardwatre vtep schema.
(https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Neutron/L2-GW ).

ovsdb server initiates the connection to l2gateway agent with the entries in manager table in ovsdb hardware vtep schema.
(https://bugs.launchpad.net/networking-l2gw/+bug/1466302 )

In this case the server code in ovs IDL (PassiveStream class) has to accept the connection from ovsdb.
But currently, the supported type is punix (AF_UNIX).
(https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/master/python/ovs/stream.py )

So is there a way to accept tcp connection in IDL library?

Thanks and regards,
