Oops. I just made some comments on one of the V1 patches before I
scrolled down and saw these v2 patches. It looks like the same comments
apply.

This is definitely looking better - it will make it much simpler for the
next interface type that needs to send migration data to do so, and it
gets the running of ovs-vsctl commands isolated into virnetdevopenvswitch.c.
