Comment 1 Bernard Cafarelli 2018-08-22 14:40:49 UTC

This got in 2.9.1, so it indeed needs the same fix as in 2.10

Comment 3 Terry Wilson 2018-08-31 18:43:07 UTC
I have requested a backport to branch-2.9 as well.

Comment 4 Terry Wilson 2018-09-01 04:20:32 UTC
The patch has been merged into upstream OVS branch-2.9. We just need to get a build made.
