Well, the BSD datapath (to my knowledge) doesn't support tunneling, so
it doesn't make a lot of sense to register the provider as it couldn't
possibly work.  We do however need the providers in the unit tests
where they're used as mocks. If we decide to add tunneling to BSD
(perhaps in the dpif-netdev), we can begin registering it of course.
