This diff was automatically generated from the xen-api.hg repository
rather than porting to the openvswitch.git repository and sending from
there. This is easier for me and I figured the mapping to paths within
openvswitch.git was fairly obvious, but if this is problematic for you
guys I can do the cross-port in the future.
