[ovs-discuss] Can open vswitch replace libipq?

I am trying to find if Open vSwitch can be used to replace libipq? I am
currently using libipq for iptables userspace packet queuing. The
performance of libipq is not that great and I was wondering if Open vSwitch
can be used for iptables packet queuing? Is there an Open vSwitch api that a
user code can make calls to receive packets from a queue, modify the packet
and reinject it back into the kernel.

Thanks in advance,
