Public bug reported:

this was reported by an early tester of OVS 2.6 / DPDK 16.07 packages in 

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

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/ --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
- 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 

See 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

But since neither DPDK nor OVS took the ownership control patches
( it has
to be a delta that we add once we have final OVS 2.6.
