Maybe I am still missing the idea, but I think it's not possible.

If we consider userspace code:
OVS_KEY_ATTR_NSH,       /* Nested set of ovs_nsh_key_* */

#ifdef __KERNEL__
/* Only used within kernel data path. */
OVS_KEY_ATTR_TUNNEL_INFO,  /* struct ovs_tunnel_info */
#endif

#ifndef __KERNEL__
/* Only used within userspace data path. */
OVS_KEY_ATTR_PACKET_TYPE,  /* be32 packet type */
OVS_KEY_ATTR_ND_EXTENSIONS, /* struct ovs_key_nd_extensions */
#endif

__OVS_KEY_ATTR_MAX
};

adding OVS_KEY_ATTR_IPV6_EXTHDRS before OVS_KEY_ATTR_PACKET_TYPE will
conflict on kernel update.

And we will see following warning:
00001|odp_util(handler1)|WARN|attribute packet_type has length 2 but
should have length 4

Best,
Tom
