DVR stability is the first class for sure, but if the code and logic could be 
less and simpler, there is more chance of stability. By my understanding, since 
DVR mac range has been configured as a prefix, so prefix based judgement 
instead of one by one flow setup triggered by mesh-like message notifying would 
simplify the code logic, thus indirectly contribute to overall stability. Also, 
it would remove hundreds of flows in the ovs in a middle scale cluster, very 
helpful for trouble shooting.
