Agreed. It's not fixable from the OVS side. I also don't want to
object to including this. I'm just raising awareness of the issue
as this will become essential for dstribution.

The obvious and usual best practise would be for DPDK to guarantee
ABI stability between minor releases.

Since dpdk-dev is copied as well, any comments?
