It isn't currently supported.  The actions in groups are OpenFlow
"action sets", which means that they are executed in a specific order
defined by the OpenFlow spec regardless of the order in which the
actions are actually specified.  We haven't yet defined where
"resubmit" should fall in that ordering, so currently resubmit doesn't
get executed at all.

I suspect that "resubmit" should happen at the end, either before or
after "group" or "output" actions.
