Ok, I can separate the commit into two patches.
VxLAN is just a kind tunnel type, there are another tunnel types based on protocol type, they are below.
* 0x0: VXLAN
* 0x1: NVGRE or other MAC in GRE
* 0x2: Geneve
0x3: IP in GRE
Currently, I just implemented VxLAN tunnel type, and we will support another tunnel types in cloud filter API later.
