Hi, I seem to have some trouble using resubmit action within a group
action. Am I doing something wrong, or is this not supported?

I installed rules as follows and did a test to see if the bucket action is
applied. But, didn't see that work. At the least, If it is not supported,
I'd have to like to see a message saying that it isn't.

$ sudo ovs-ofctl --protocols=OpenFlow13 add-group s1
$ sudo ovs-ofctl --protocols=OpenFlow13 add-flow s1
$ sudo ovs-ofctl --protocols=OpenFlow13 add-flow s1

*$ sudo ovs-ofctl --protocols=OpenFlow13 dump-groups s1*OFPST_GROUP_DESC
reply (OF1.3) (xid=0x2):

*$ sudo ovs-ofctl --protocols=OpenFlow13 dump-flows s1*OFPST_FLOW reply
(OF1.3) (xid=0x2):
 cookie=0x0, duration=29.300s, table=0, n_packets=0, n_bytes=0,
ip,nw_dst= actions=group:1
 cookie=0x0, duration=53.772s, table=1, n_packets=0, n_bytes=0,
ip,nw_dst= actions=output:2

*$ sudo ovs-appctl ofproto/trace s1
in_port=1,ip,dl_dst=00:10:10:10:10:14,nw_dst=*Bridge: s1
Rule: table=0 cookie=0 ip,nw_dst=
OpenFlow actions=group:1

Final flow: unchanged
Megaflow: recirc_id=0,skb_priority=0,ip,in_port=1,nw_dst=,nw_frag=no
Datapath actions: drop

When I tested by sending real packets, I had the same drop effect.
