Public bug reported:

Hi,
this was reported by an early tester of OVS 2.6 / DPDK 16.07 packages in 
yakkety.

TL;DR
 - the old --vhost-owner --vhost-perm seem no more to be passed to the DPDK 
commandline
 - OVS complains about ovs-vswitchd: unrecognized option '--vhost-owner'

Example:
ovs-vswitchd \
--vhost-owner libvirt-qemu:kvm \
--vhost-perm 0664 \
-- unix:$DB_SOCK -vconsole:emer -vsyslog:err -vfile:info \
--mlockall --no-chdir \
--log-file=/var/log/openvswitch/ovs-vswitchd.log \
--pidfile=/var/run/openvswitch/ovs-vswitchd.pid --detach --monitor
ovs-vswitchd: unrecognized option '--vhost-owner'

I expect this to be either of these two:
- actually those should be after a --dpdk switch to get to the DPDK EAL 
commandline. Just how we describe it at 
https://help.ubuntu.com/16.04/serverguide/DPDK.html#dpdk-openvswitch
OR
- An upstream change on OVS 2.6 now interferes and breaks the passing of these 
options. A lot was changed to push DPDK config to the ovsdb so this can be 
possible.

See http://openvswitch.org/support/dist-docs/INSTALL.DPDK-
ADVANCED.md.html for most of the new other_config values.

I expect to be the second more than the first case due to DPDK
configuration being completely changed into an ovsdb based operation.
Search for dpdk here http://openvswitch.org/support/dist-docs/ovs-
vswitchd.conf.db.5.html.

But since neither DPDK nor OVS took the ownership control patches
(https://www.mail-archive.com/dev@openvswitch.org/msg69706.html) it has
to be a delta that we add once we have final OVS 2.6.
