[ovs-dev] [PATCH] Improved Packet Drop Statistics in OVS.

The user-space part for packet drop stats should be generic and work with any dpif datapath. 
So, if someone implemented the equivalent drop stats functionality in the kernel datapath that would be very welcome.
We in Ericsson cannot do that currently due to license restrictions.

Regards, Jan
