Subject KVM with OVS GRE has been supported on 4.3 release ?
Date Mon, 14 Jul 2014 03:02:53 GMT
Hello, everyone, 
Has anyone used OVS GRE with KVM on 4.3 release for isolation guest network ?
Why there is no code support such as in 

private String getGreEndpointIP(Host host, Network nw) 
switch (hvType) {
        case XenServer:
            String label = physNetTT.getXenNetworkLabel();
            if ((label != null) && (!label.equals(""))) {
                physNetLabel = label;
            throw new CloudRuntimeException("Hypervisor " +
                    hvType.toString() +
                    " unsupported by OVS Tunnel Manager");

PS: Using 4.3 release code

If not support, why a release doc has mentioned as below:
