It's kernel and userspace.  There's multiple current development
efforts that involve changes to OpenStack, OVS userspace, and the
appropriate datapath (OVS kernel module or DPDK).

The consensus I'm picking up roughly is that for those working on the
features, testing with source builds seems to be working fine.  It's
just not something anyone wants to gate the main Neutron repo with.
That seems quite reasonable.  If the features aren't in proper
releases yet, I don't see gating as that important anyway.
