​The primary limitation here is that the userspace (DPDK) datapath does not
yet support NAT.  See the datapath feature matrix here:

http://docs.openvswitch.org/en/latest/faq/releases/​
​
​So, indeed, provider networks only is going to the configuration​ that
works with DPDK.  You could do Geneve networks + provider networks,
assuming you set it up so that NAT is not used anywhere.
