The data structures which we care about are: The all_bridges list and
br->ofproto in each bridge. I admit that this feels a bit fragile. I
think the correct solution is to move expensive stuff into the worker
process so this sort of thing isn't necessary. Perhaps we could get
rid of the run_fast hooks all together. For now though I don't think
this patch will cause problems.
