As things are set in 3.14 and AFAIK also in RHEL 7.0, for GRO/VXLAN to 
come into play you need to run over a NIC which supports RX checksum 
offload too, is this the case?

Also, the configuration you run with isn't the typical play of VXLAN 
with OVS... I didn't try it out and this week being out to LPC.

Did you try the usual track of running OVS VXLAN port?e.g as explained 
in the Example section of [1]
