Subject: Re: [dpdk-users] rte_flow() usage of htonl() for ipv4 addr masks?

It should convert to network order, although many applications it won't
matter since they use all F's. If you follow the code in flow_filtering,
indeed it's using:

#define FULL_MASK 0xffffffff /* full mask */

So it won't make any difference. The example should probably be
updated, though..
