[ovs-discuss] tap ports...

Can OVS create tap ports like OpenVPN or KVM (Qemu) or User Mode Linux 
use?  I.e. an Ethernet interface inside OVS and a socket that 
applications can glom onto and use.

I think I can create the tap interfaces manually (via tunctl or ip 
tuntap…) and then add them to a bridge.  However I feel like this is 
unnecessary and may very well be something that OVS can do without the 
separate devices.

Hence my question if OVS can create (internal) tap interfaces, much the 
same way that it can create (internal) vEth (like) interfaces.
