Good catch. I only fully tested the GTPv1 path against oai-cn. Will fix
this and test the GTPv0 path as well.

I had doubts on how this flow-based GTPv1 code path should fit in, 
which is why the GTPv0 and the GTPv1 code pieces are mixed in my changes. 

Should I explicitly claim that the flow-based change is for GTPv1 only?

The reason I’m checking GTP1U_PORT here is to filter GTP1U traffic. 
It possible to pass a port number from ovs into the gtp module. I will 
investigate how to support programmable port.

Right, will fix this for GTPv0.

It is meant to be OVS independent. What makes it not? Should I leave 
this field un-initialized?
