[ovs-discuss] Apply some packet manipulation actions on outgoing port traffic

I will check on about GTP ongoing activities (I saw some actitvities on
providing capabilities to match on GTP-C/GTP-U packets).
maybe dumb question, but any pointer on how to remove GRE header (or VXLAN
for that matter) when switching packet from IN port to OUT port and switch
out only internal packet/payload ?
