/testing/openvswitch - version bump to 2.01 + revised init scripts
** This is a clean patch against Master ** Version bump to 2.0.1 Init scripts improved to start ovsdb-server & ovs-vswitchd before networking comes up. ovs-dbserver is now a hard dependency for ovs-vswitchd to keep them in sync & prevent a hanging boot process. LXC Guests now autostart correctly on reboots. MACVLAN interfaces work out of the box with LXC. To use VETH interfaces with LXC do *NOT* set 'lxc.network.link' in /var/lib/lxc/guest/config - the VETH must be added manually with: ovs-vsctl --may-exist add-br $BRIDGE ovs-vsctl --may-exist add-port $BRIDGE $PORT I removed ovs-controller as it's not needed to run openvswitch & is no longer part of the current git. ovs-monitor will be removed from a default installation in the next release as it is poorly maintained & nobody really uses it. I've tested openvswitch 2.0.1 & have it bridging VETH across NAT & bridging MACVLAN interfaces internally without any problems. Bonding should also work.
