If I remember correctly OVS uses only the classifier table, making a 
hash of the openflow fields for lookup.

You might use the other tables to do "jumps", like in iptables. But on 
these tables it should be linear lookup (Not sure).

Don't know any case that you need to use the other tables, if anyone 
have a use case for them, please tell us. Im curious as well now.
