openvswitch: Add conntrack action
Expose the kernel connection tracker via OVS. Userspace components can make use of the CT action to populate the connection state (ct_state) field for a flow. This state can be subsequently matched. Exposed connection states are OVS_CS_F_*: - NEW (0x01) - Beginning of a new connection. - ESTABLISHED (0x02) - Part of an existing connection. - RELATED (0x04) - Related to an established connection. - INVALID (0x20) - Could not track the connection for this packet. - REPLY_DIR (0x40) - This packet is in the reply direction for the flow. - TRACKED (0x80) - This packet has been sent through conntrack. When the CT action is executed by itself, it will send the packet through the connection tracker and populate the ct_state field with one or more of the connection state flags above. The CT action will always set the TRACKED bit. When the COMMIT flag is passed to the conntrack action, this specifies that information about the connection should be stored. This allows subsequent packets for the same (or related) connections to be correlated with this connection. Sending subsequent packets for the connection through conntrack allows the connection tracker to consider the packets as ESTABLISHED, RELATED, and/or REPLY_DIR. The CT action may optionally take a zone to track the flow within. This allows connections with the same 5-tuple to be kept logically separate from connections in other zones. If the zone is specified, then the "ct_zone" match field will be subsequently populated with the zone id. IP fragments are handled by transparently assembling them as part of the CT action. The maximum received unit (MRU) size is tracked so that refragmentation can occur during output. IP frag handling contributed by Andy Zhou. Based on original design by Justin Pettit.
