[ovs-discuss] Interface Type in Interface Table of OVS DB

It is 100% like that. In my case ovn-controller creates these geneve and vxlan interfaces, but it looks like that information never gets to Interface table, because “type” is empty there.

I don't know any way you can have vxlan or geneve ports without setting
the interface type to vxlan or geneve. Please check again.
