For fields, you should just have to add an entry to OXM_CLASSES in
build-aux/extract-ofp-fields.  For actions, vendor_map in

I have found a little bit of info at the end of the page there: https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/7169d4fdc8e564331c7a5ad910bc1d99cb413712/FAQ.rst#development <https://github.com/openvswitch/ovs/blob/7169d4fdc8e564331c7a5ad910bc1d99cb413712/FAQ.rst#development>. It is quite brief.
