ovs-dpctl: description ‘used=never’

Original post here.

When using ovs-dpctl, there are flow descriptions with “used=never”. What does it mean? It means that a packet went up to the userspace (ovs-vswitchd), a match was found and it was copied to the kernel space. However, there were no more following packets that matched the rule cached in the kernel’s table.
