Hi Pavithra, I thought that the goal that we discussed in person was
this: if the path is not absolute (does not begin with "/") then
interpret it relative to ovs_rundir().  This does something quite
different: if the path does not include ovs_rundir(), it adds
ovs_rundir() as a prefix.

Please also read Ethan's comments.
