Hi Eli,

Thanks for the patch.  In my personal opinion, I feel this patch makes
the header file harder to read.

For example, to see how 'struct ovs_key_ipv6' is defined, now we need
to trace how OVS_KEY_IPV6_FIELDS is defined, and how OVS_KEY_FIELD_ARR
and OVS_KEY_FIELD defined.  I think it makes the header file to be
more complicated.

There are also some discussion on ovs-dev mailing list about this
patch: https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/cover/1023404/

Thanks,

-Yi-Hung
