Oh, my mistake, but it is possible not to polulate nsh key in flow_key
for push_nsh then set, as Jan and I explained before, we don't
recirculate the packet after push_nsh for performance, so parse function
isn't called for NSH header, mdtype can't be gotten from flow_key yet.
Only one case is true, i.e. an ingress NSH packet is parsed then set by 
changing si and ttl.

For push_nsh, my typical use scinario is push_nsh then set then output
to vxlangpe port.
