I am using Kernel ver. 3.10. There's a bit of a history though. I
tried 2.3.1 on this machine and then vxlan didn't work.
Then i installed OVS 2.0.0, in that VxLAN worked. Then i uninstalled
2.0.0 and installed 2.3.1 and that worked with VxLAN too.
So I was thinking if 2.0.0 got the vxlan module installed?
In kernel ver 3.10 - isn't it supposed to list the vxlan kernel module
if i don't go through this upgrade path?
