[ovs-dev] [PATCH v2 1/3] userspace datapath: Add OVS_HASH_L4_SYMMETRIC dp_hash algorithm

This commit implements a new dp_hash algorithm OVS_HASH_L4_SYMMETRIC in
the netdev datapath. It will be used as default hash algorithm for the
dp_hash-based select groups in a subsequent commit to maintain
compatibility with the symmetry property of the current default hash
selection method.
