This looks good, but the following definition of ADD_OF_PORTS should
be faster because it will run ovs-vsctl only once regardless of the
number of ports to add:

  [ovs-vsctl m4_foreach([of_port], m4_cdr($@),
    [ \
-- add-port $1 p[]of_port -- set Interface p[]of_port type=dummy ofport_request=of_port])])
