Hi Jasvinder, It's not a bidirectional packet flow. The pipeline looks something like this.
Ingress port-----Table 1 ----Table-2 ----- Mac_Table ----- Table4 ---- Egress port.
Before the frame goes reaches table 4, we do 2 lookups at the mac table.
1. src lookup ( To learn the MAC on the bridge)
2. dst lookup ( Flooding if dst MAC look up fails else Unicast/forward if dst lookup success).
Here are the keys we are using.
Src lookup key - Src MAC (src MAC in the frame) + Bridge ID ( Bridge on which it arrived).
Dst lookup key - Dst MAC (dst MAC in the frame) + Bridge ID ( Bridge on which it arrived)

Could you share detail on the two different keys used for lookups. In case if you are considering bidirectional packet flow between the source and destination, symmetric hash can be used- http://www.ndsl.kaist.edu/~kyoungsoo/papers/TR-symRSS.pdf
