The following patchset introduces hardware offload of OVS connection
tracking datapath rules.

OVS uses ct() and recirc() (recirculation) actions and recirc_id()/ct_state()
matches to support connection tracking.

The datapath rules are in the form of:

recirc_id(0),in_port(dev1),eth_type(0x0800),ct_state(-trk) 
actions:ct(),recirc(2)
recirc_id(2),in_port(dev1),eth_type(0x0800),ct_state(+trk+est) actions:4

This patchset will translate ct_state() and recirc_id() matches to tc 
ct_state and chain matches respectively. The datapath actions ct() and recirc()
will be translated to tc actions ct and goto chain respectively.

The tc equivalent commands for the above rules are:

$ tc filter add dev dev1 ingress \
                    prio 1 chain 0 proto ip \
                                flower tcp ct_state -trk \
                                action ct pipe \
                                action goto chain 2
                                
$ tc filter add dev dev1 ingress \
                    prio 1 chain 2 proto ip \
                                flower tcp ct_state +trk+est \
                                action mirred egress redirect dev dev2

Thanks,
Roi
