Hi folks:
  There is already a vxlan implement in openvswitch, but it doesn't
follow the rfc spec very well, and some main features are missing (ex,
broadcast multicast mapping, endpoint auto discover). And there is a
better implement since linux kernel 3.8, it is almost complete in
kernel 3.9

  The kernel implementation provides more features (like static
forward table entry, arp reduce), and is easier to config, is there
any working progress on it ?
