[ovs-discuss] Early addition of flows in the kernel.

As per my understanding, OVS inserts the flow in the kernel when an
exception packet is handled by the vswitchd (ofcourse when matching flow is
present in the vswitchd).

Is it possible to push the flow into the kernel as soon as the flow gets
added to vswitchd ? This enables in avoiding the exception mechanism and
hence faster processing.

Can you briefly let me know why the design was kept so ?
