Queue1 (denoting NIC DMA) is a buffer that stores the incoming packets. M1 processes the packets, and looks up the flow table to match an entry. If the match fails, the packet is sent to Queue2 in order to be handled by ovs-vswitchd. If successful, the packet will be sent out by M2, which finishes the left processing.
