[ovs-dev] [PATCH 1/3] datapath: When adding a port, return the new port number to userspace.

'port' is a kernel-space copy of the odp_port and modifying it is useless.
'portp' is the userspace copy; modifying it is useful.

None of our current userspace users care about the port number and so we
never noticed.
