  9           Open vSwitch is a multilayer Ethernet switch targeted at virtualized
 10           environments.  In addition to supporting a variety of features
 11           expected in a traditional hardware switch, it enables fine-grained
 12           programmatic extension and flow-based control of the network.  This
 13           control is useful in a wide variety of applications but is
 14           particularly important in multi-server virtualization deployments,
 15           which are often characterized by highly dynamic endpoints and the
 16           need to maintain logical abstractions for multiple tenants.
 17 
 18           The Open vSwitch datapath provides an in-kernel fast path for packet
 19           forwarding.  It is complemented by a userspace daemon, ovs-vswitchd,
 20           which is able to accept configuration from a variety of sources and
 21           translate it into packet processing rules.
 22 
 23           See http://openvswitch.org for more information and userspace
 24           utilities.

 26           To compile this code as a module, choose M here: the module will be
 27           called openvswitch.
 28 
 29           If unsure, say N.

 31 config OPENVSWITCH_GRE
 32         bool "Open vSwitch GRE tunneling support"

 36         default y
 37         ---help---
 38           If you say Y here, then the Open vSwitch will be able create GRE
 39           vport.
 40 
 41           Say N to exclude this support and reduce the binary size.
 42 
 43           If unsure, say Y.

 45 config OPENVSWITCH_VXLAN
 46         bool "Open vSwitch VXLAN tunneling support"

 48         depends on OPENVSWITCH
 49         depends on VXLAN && !(OPENVSWITCH=y && VXLAN=m)
 50         default y
 51         ---help---
 52           If you say Y here, then the Open vSwitch will be able create vxlan vport.
 53 
 54           Say N to exclude this support and reduce the binary size.

 56           If unsure, say Y.
