QoS is currently supported for the Linux kernel datapath and DPDK.  They make use of underlying QoS support of the platform.  For example, on the Linux kernel datapath, the tc subsystem is used.

There's some discussion in the ovs-vswitchd.conf.db man page of the various QoS types supported on each platform.  If you want gory details, you can look at some of the comments in places like "lib/netdev-linux.c".
