This command only shows the actual available options, not the currently selected ones.

I think from a support perspective, we need this command to also show the current setting for each datapath. Having this only in the log will not work in cases where the log is overwritten.


Guess this also is true for the MFEX patchset (will reply during my review) and the already included “ovs-appctl dpif-netdev/subtable-lookup-prio-get”
