Here is a short update I should have done in last week (apologize for
being late).

The RSS action should work. I also have intergated it to ovs-dpdk. I
intended to send v4 in last week. Later, I noticed a fatal bug (regarding
to MQ).

I was still heavily occupied by something else, that I don't have time
to fix that. I have tried to figure out a solution at spare time though.
I might have found a solution. I just don't know the results yet without
really trying it.

I will update progress when I have made some. Please also note that
it's very likely I won't have time on that before the end of this month :/
