OVS port mirror to instance

Hi, I just created a mirror port using OVS, this is the mirror I created:

ovs-vsctl -- set bridge br-int mirrors=@m \
    -- --id=@dest_port get port dest_port \
    -- --id=@m create mirror name=m0 select-all=true output-port=@dest_port

I tested it with tcpdump and everything works as it should.

However, how would I map the traffic from dest_port to one of my OpenStack instances? Would it be possible to send the mirrored traffic to an existing tap port?

Any help is really appreciated!
