[ovs-dev] [PATCH 2/2] flow: Differentiate between "port" when printing flows

When printing a flow, there were two references to "port": one the
interface the packet arrived on and the other the L4 ports.  This could
be a bit confusing to new users looking at the output of a command such
as "ovs-ofctl dump-flows".  This commit changes the incoming interface
field from "port" to "in_port".
