Group Select Selection Method Extension Accepted into Open vSwitch

Work by Simon Horman of Horms Solutions to extend select groups to allow finer grained control over them has been accepted and is now present in the master branch of the Open vSwitch repository.

This work provides a mechanism to control algorithm used make load balancing decisions of select groups. A flexible hashing method is also provided as an example. It allows control via OpenFlow of which fields of the flow key are hashed.
