This series patch optimize openvswitch for performance or simplify
codes.

Patch 1, 2, 4: Port Pravin B Shelar patches to
linux upstream with little changes.

Patch 5, 6, 7: Optimize the flow looking up and
simplify the flow hash.

Patch 8, 9: are bugfix.

The performance test is on Intel Xeon E5-2630 v4.
The test topology is show as below:

+-----------------------------------+
|   +---------------------------+   |
|   | eth0   ovs-switch    eth1 |   | Host0
|   +---------------------------+   |
+-----------------------------------+
      ^                       |
      |                       |
      |                       |
      |                       |
      |                       v
+-----+----+             +----+-----+
| netperf  | Host1       | netserver| Host2
+----------+             +----------+

We use netperf send the 64B packets, and insert 255+ flow-mask:
$ ovs-dpctl add-flow ovs-switch "in_port(1),eth(dst=00:01:00:00:00:00/ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:01),eth_type(0x0800),ipv4(frag=no)" 2
...
$ ovs-dpctl add-flow ovs-switch "in_port(1),eth(dst=00:ff:00:00:00:00/ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff),eth_type(0x0800),ipv4(frag=no)" 2
$
$ netperf -t UDP_STREAM -H 2.2.2.200 -l 40 -- -m 18

* Without series patch, throughput 8.28Mbps
* With series patch, throughput 46.05Mbps

v3->v4:
access ma->count with READ_ONCE/WRITE_ONCE API. More information,
see patch 5 comments. 

v2->v3:
update ma point when realloc mask_array in patch 5.

v1->v2:
use kfree_rcu instead of call_rcu
