[ovs-dev] [PATCH net] openvswitch: handle DNAT tuple collision

With multiple DNAT rules it's possible that after destination
translation the resulting tuples collide.

For example, two openvswitch flows:
nw_dst=10.0.0.10,tp_dst=10, actions=ct(commit,table=2,nat(dst=20.0.0.1:20))
nw_dst=10.0.0.20,tp_dst=10, actions=ct(commit,table=2,nat(dst=20.0.0.1:20))

Assuming two TCP clients initiating the following connections:
10.0.0.10:5000->10.0.0.10:10
10.0.0.10:5000->10.0.0.20:10

Both tuples would translate to 10.0.0.10:5000->20.0.0.1:20 causing
nf_conntrack_confirm() to fail because of tuple collision.

Netfilter handles this case by allocating a null binding for SNAT at
egress by default.  Perform the same operation in openvswitch for DNAT
if no explicit SNAT is requested by the user and allocate a null binding
for SNAT for packets in the "original" direction.
