[ovs-discuss] Tool to find flows that may trigger undefined behavior?

If flow A is like "table=0,priority=100,ip,nw_src=1.1.1.1,actions=..."
and flow B is like "table=0,priority=100,ip,nw_dst=2.2.2.2,actions=..."

a single packet can theoretically match both flows and the behavior is
undefined, which is bad.

Does anybody know of a tool that examine your flows and let you know if you
have this problem?

Supplemental question: Is there a potential performance impact of this
situation and is it documented anywhere?

Thanks!
