Is it possible that there's slightly more overhead in the algorithm(s) 
of the simple L2 learning functionality of the "NORMAL" action? 
Compared to simple rules that explicitly match the frame and specify an 
action?  (Assuming that there aren't any other flows before the 
aforementioned flows would match and act.)
