This series of patches proposes the Open vSwitch kernel components for
upstream.  Open vSwitch has existed as a separate project for several
years and we now believe it to be mature enough for inclusion.  The
actual functionality is described more fully in the commit that adds
the kernel code.

The following changes since commit b8ffdbd05f8692cdadccd04464271e48b1e8d439:

  gianfar: Use kmemdup rather than duplicating its implementation (2011-11-21 15:02:36 -0500)
