[ovs-dev] [PATCH 2/3] bond: Create new "bond-stable-id".

Stable bonding mode needs an ID to guarantee consistent slave
selection decisions across ovs-vswitchd instances.  Before this
patch, we used the lacp-port-id for this purpose.  However, LACP
places restrictions on how lacp-port-ids can be allocated which may
be inconvenient.  This patch creates a special purpose
bond-stable-id other_config setting which allows users to tweak
this value directly.
