Hi Chris,

I am aware of 2 projects that might qualify, but I am not sure if either of
them can be considered of production quality at this stage:
- PISCES, a P4-programmable version of OVS: http://pisces.cs.princeton.edu/
- P4 at ELTE, a project which generates C code which interfaces with DPDK:
I would recommend that you get in touch with the developers for these
