How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Run vsperf pvp_tput case with jumbo frame on dell52, got 0mpps. Detail step:
Dell52 qede nic connect with Dell53 xxv nic directly. Dell53 use for TRex sender.

1. bind two port to dpdk
driverctl -v set-override 0000:82:00.0 vfio-pci
driverctl -v set-override 0000:82:00.1 vfio-pci
2. build ovs topo
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl set Open_vSwitch . other_config:dpdk-init=true
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl set Open_vSwitch . other_config:dpdk-socket-mem=4096,4096
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl set Open_vSwitch . other_config:dpdk-lcore-mask=0x2
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-br br0 -- set bridge br0 datapath_type=netdev
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl set Open_vSwitch . other_config:pmd-cpu-mask=0x80000008000000
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-port br0 dpdk0 -- set Interface dpdk0 type=dpdk options:dpdk-devargs=0000:82:00.0 options:n_rxq=1 mtu_request=2000
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-port br0 dpdk1 -- set Interface dpdk1 type=dpdk options:dpdk-devargs=0000:82:00.1 options:n_rxq=1 mtu_request=2000
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-port br0 dpdkvhostuserclient0 -- set Interface dpdkvhostuserclient0 type=dpdkvhostuserclient -- set Interface dpdkvhostuserclient0 options:vhost-server-path=/var/run/openvswitch/dpdkvhostuserclient0 mtu_request=2000
/usr/bin/ovs-vsctl add-port br0 dpdkvhostuserclient1 -- set Interface dpdkvhostuserclient1 type=dpdkvhostuserclient -- set Interface dpdkvhostuserclient1 options:vhost-server-path=/var/run/openvswitch/dpdkvhostuserclient1 mtu_request=2000
/usr/bin/ovs-ofctl -O OpenFlow13 del-flows br0 
/usr/bin/ovs-ofctl -O OpenFlow13 add-flow br0 in_port=1,idle_timeout=0,action=output:3 
/usr/bin/ovs-ofctl -O OpenFlow13 add-flow br0 in_port=3,idle_timeout=0,action=output:1
/usr/bin/ovs-ofctl -O OpenFlow13 add-flow br0 in_port=4,idle_timeout=0,action=output:2
/usr/bin/ovs-ofctl -O OpenFlow13 add-flow br0 in_port=2,idle_timeout=0,action=output:4

3. use following command to start guest
sudo -E taskset -c 3,5,33 /usr/libexec/qemu-kvm -m 8192 -smp 3,sockets=3,cores=1,threads=1 -cpu host,migratable=off -drive if=ide,file=rhel7.6-vsperf-1Q-noviommu.qcow2 -boot c --enable-kvm -monitor unix:/tmp/vm0monitor,server,nowait -object memory-backend-file,id=mem,size=8192M,mem-path=/dev/hugepages,share=on -numa node,memdev=mem -mem-prealloc -nographic -vnc :0 -name Client0 -snapshot -net none -no-reboot -chardev socket,id=char0,path=/var/run/openvswitch/dpdkvhostuserclient0,server -netdev type=vhost-user,id=net1,chardev=char0,vhostforce,queues=1 -device virtio-net-pci,mac=00:00:00:00:00:01,netdev=net1,csum=off,gso=off,guest_tso4=off,guest_tso6=off,guest_ecn=off,rx_queue_size=1024,mq=on,vectors=4 -chardev socket,id=char1,path=/var/run/openvswitch/dpdkvhostuserclient1,server -netdev type=vhost-user,id=net2,chardev=char1,vhostforce,queues=1 -device virtio-net-pci,mac=00:00:00:00:00:02,netdev=net2,csum=off,gso=off,guest_tso4=off,guest_tso6=off,guest_ecn=off,rx_queue_size=1024,mq=on,vectors=4

4. Inside guest, start testpmd to forward packet
modprobe -r vfio
modprobe -r vfio_iommu_type1
modprobe vfio enable_unsafe_noiommu_mode=Y
modprobe vfio-pci
/usr/share/dpdk/usertools/ -b vfio-pci 00:03.0 00:04.0
/usr/bin/testpmd -l 0,1,2 -n 4 --socket-mem 1024 -- --burst=64 -i --txqflags=0xf00 --rxd=512 --txd=512 --disable-hw-vlan --nb-cores=2 --txq=1 --rxq=1 --max-pkt-len=2000 --forward-mode=io  --auto-start

5. Use Trex send rfc2544 traffic. src mac and dst mac are the mac of Trex two ports.

Actual results:
Got 0 throughput.
According to the flows, the dpdk0 didn't receive any packet.
[root@dell-per730-52 ~]# ovs-ofctl dump-flows br0
 cookie=0x0, duration=53.014s, table=0, n_packets=0, n_bytes=0, in_port=dpdk0 actions=output:3
 cookie=0x0, duration=52.982s, table=0, n_packets=0, n_bytes=0, in_port=3 actions=output:dpdk0
 cookie=0x0, duration=52.950s, table=0, n_packets=0, n_bytes=0, in_port=4 actions=output:dpdk1
 cookie=0x0, duration=52.917s, table=0, n_packets=0, n_bytes=0, in_port=dpdk1 actions=output:4

It work well with fdp 18.11 openvswitch2.10-2.10.0-10.el7fdp. 
fdp 19.A: openvswitch2.11-2.11.0-0.20190129gitd3a10db.el7fdp does not work.
fdp 18.12 openvswitch2.10-2.10.0-28.el7fdp.x86_64 also does not work.

run same case on fdp 18.11 openvswitch2.10-2.10.0-10.el7fdp, check flows as following, and got 1.2mpps throughput.
[root@dell-per730-52 vswitchperf]# ovs-ofctl dump-flows br0
 cookie=0x0, duration=45.323s, table=0, n_packets=16181, n_bytes=32297276, in_port=dpdk0 actions=output:3
 cookie=0x0, duration=45.286s, table=0, n_packets=16211, n_bytes=32357156, in_port=3 actions=output:dpdk0
 cookie=0x0, duration=45.248s, table=0, n_packets=16181, n_bytes=32297276, in_port=4 actions=output:dpdk1
 cookie=0x0, duration=45.211s, table=0, n_packets=16211, n_bytes=32357156, in_port=dpdk1 actions=output:4

Expected results:
The jumbo frame case should work well.
