I had figured that it differs from the approach OVS implements (top
layer is a linear list of masks), to instead have a trie structure
with key+mask so you can work your way through the trie to determine
which hashtable the packet resides in. Rather than worst case N masks
to iterate to determine that the packet doesn't match anything, it's M
layers of the trie + 1.
