pravin shelar 2279994d07 openvswitch: avoid resetting flow key while installing new flow.
since commit commit db74a3335e ("openvswitch: use percpu
flow stats") flow alloc resets flow-key. So there is no need
to reset the flow-key again if OVS is using newly allocated

Pravin B Shelar fc4099f172 openvswitch: Fix egress tunnel info.
While transitioning to netdev based vport we broke OVS
feature which allows user to retrieve tunnel packet egress
information for lwtunnel devices.  Following patch fixes it
by introducing ndo operation to get the tunnel egress info.
Same ndo operation can be used for lwtunnel devices and compat
ovs-tnl-vport devices. So after adding such device operation
we can remove similar operation from ovs-vport.

Fixes: 614732eaa1 ("openvswitch: Use regular VXLAN net_device device").

Pravin B Shelar 4c22279848 ip-tunnel: Use API to access tunnel metadata options.
Currently tun-info options pointer is used in few cases to
pass options around. But tunnel options can be accessed using
ip_tunnel_info_opts() API without using the pointer. Following
patch removes the redundant pointer and consistently make use
of API.

Joe Stringer c2ac667358 openvswitch: Allow matching on conntrack label
Allow matching and setting the ct_label field. As with ct_mark, this is
populated by executing the CT action. The label field may be modified by
specifying a label and mask nested under the CT action. It is stored as
metadata attached to the connection. Label modification occurs after
lookup, and will only persist when the conntrack entry is committed by
providing the COMMIT flag to the CT action. Labels are currently fixed
to 128 bits in size.

Joe Stringer 7f8a436eaa openvswitch: Add conntrack action
Expose the kernel connection tracker via OVS. Userspace components can
make use of the CT action to populate the connection state (ct_state)
field for a flow. This state can be subsequently matched.

Exposed connection states are OVS_CS_F_*:
- NEW (0x01) - Beginning of a new connection.
- ESTABLISHED (0x02) - Part of an existing connection.
- RELATED (0x04) - Related to an established connection.
- INVALID (0x20) - Could not track the connection for this packet.
- REPLY_DIR (0x40) - This packet is in the reply direction for the flow.
- TRACKED (0x80) - This packet has been sent through conntrack.

When the CT action is executed by itself, it will send the packet
through the connection tracker and populate the ct_state field with one
or more of the connection state flags above. The CT action will always
set the TRACKED bit.

When the COMMIT flag is passed to the conntrack action, this specifies
that information about the connection should be stored. This allows
subsequent packets for the same (or related) connections to be
correlated with this connection. Sending subsequent packets for the
connection through conntrack allows the connection tracker to consider
the packets as ESTABLISHED, RELATED, and/or REPLY_DIR.

The CT action may optionally take a zone to track the flow within. This
allows connections with the same 5-tuple to be kept logically separate
from connections in other zones. If the zone is specified, then the
"ct_zone" match field will be subsequently populated with the zone id.

IP fragments are handled by transparently assembling them as part of the
CT action. The maximum received unit (MRU) size is tracked so that
refragmentation can occur during output.

IP frag handling contributed by Andy Zhou.

Based on original design by Justin Pettit.

Thomas Graf 1d8fff9073 ip_tunnel: Make ovs_tunnel_info and ovs_key_ipv4_tunnel generic
Rename the tunnel metadata data structures currently internal to
OVS and make them generic for use by all IP tunnels.

Both structures are kernel internal and will stay that way. Their
members are exposed to user space through individual Netlink
attributes by OVS. It will therefore be possible to extend/modify
these structures without affecting user ABI.

Joe Stringer 74ed7ab926 openvswitch: Add support for unique flow IDs.
Previously, flows were manipulated by userspace specifying a full,
unmasked flow key. This adds significant burden onto flow
serialization/deserialization, particularly when dumping flows.

This patch adds an alternative way to refer to flows using a
variable-length "unique flow identifier" (UFID). At flow setup time,
userspace may specify a UFID for a flow, which is stored with the flow
and inserted into a separate table for lookup, in addition to the
standard flow table. Flows created using a UFID must be fetched or
deleted using the UFID.

All flow dump operations may now be made more terse with OVS_UFID_F_*
flags. For example, the OVS_UFID_F_OMIT_KEY flag allows responses to
omit the flow key from a datapath operation if the flow has a
corresponding UFID. This significantly reduces the time spent assembling
and transacting netlink messages. With all OVS_UFID_F_OMIT_* flags
enabled, the datapath only returns the UFID and statistics for each flow
during flow dump, increasing ovs-vswitchd revalidator performance by 40%
or more.

serialization functions ovs_nla_put_{unmasked_key,mask}(). Modify
ovs_nla_put_flow() to handle attribute nesting and expose the 'is_mask'

knowledge about whether it is serializing a mask or not.

Wenyu Zhang 8f0aad6f35 openvswitch: Extend packet attribute for egress tunnel info
OVS vswitch has extended IPFIX exporter to export tunnel headers
to improve network visibility.
To export this information userspace needs to know egress tunnel
for given packet. By extending packet attributes datapath can
export egress tunnel info for given packet. So that userspace
can ask for egress tunnel info in userspace action. This
information is used to build IPFIX data for given flow.

Pravin B Shelar e298e50570 openvswitch: Per cpu flow stats.
With mega flow implementation ovs flow can be shared between
multiple CPUs which makes stats updates highly contended
operation. This patch uses per-CPU stats in cases where a flow
is likely to be shared (if there is a wildcard in the 5-tuple
and therefore likely to be spread by RSS). In other situations,
it uses the current strategy, saving memory and allocation time.
