Thanks for the patch!

Usually, for kernel module changes, the workflow is to submit the change
upstream to the Linux kernel first ("upstream first").  Then, afterward,
we backport the upstream changes into the OVS repository.

I see that you have CCed this to the Linux kernel networking list
(netdev) but the patch itself is against the OVS repo.  Probably, if you
want to get reviews from netdev, you should instead post a patch against
the net-next repository.

Thanks again for working to improve Open vSwitch.
