Well as far as I understood the pdf one of the biggest difference is that 
Maglev is a distributed system where the consistent hash is for local system.

What I think is if consistent hash uses the peers table for balancing it could 
be similar to Maglev, but I'm not a algo expert, just an Idea.

I don't know if it's have any benefits for haproxy, I have seen this algo on 
envoy site and wanted to know what the experts here means about it :-)

I've not used it yet with IPVS because I have nothing with a new enough
Kernel (4.18+ I think), however, isn't this quite similar to HAProxy's
consistent hash options?
