Do you use 2 NIC per Host ? Are they NIC team ?
Maybe use bond ?
ovs-vsctl add-bond br0 bond0 eth1 eth2

On your dump-flows you should have something like:
cookie=0x0, duration=586260.781s, table=0, n_packets=20102186,
n_bytes=91142249326, priority=0 actions=NORMAL
As the default, action NORMAL do the L2/L3 processing. So no need for a
I think the L2 mac-learning using a controller is just an example of
what you can do with a controller.
OVS alone should work in most of the cases.
