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?

same reason as above.

Yes, only GTPv1 is supported.

I didn't investigate it. What do you mean by persist?
