Hi everyone:
    I have found the table of ovs feature && Linux upstream in release.rst. From this chart we could found some ovs feature need higher linux kernel version. But my linux kernel is redhat 3.10, and I have found some feature in the list also worked well, such as connection tracking && tunnel-Geneve. 
    so my question is, should we  update the linux kernel version listed in chart to fullfill all ovs 2.10.1 feature?
