hi Sam,
The reason we defined OvsTypes.h was to make sure that we can compiled what was openvswitch.h earlier, and now is OvsDpInterface.h. There's no plan to use non windows types in the code within ovsext.

So, pls. don't delete the existing contents of OvsTypes.h. If you want to add something, pls. spin up a patch for it and send it over. I'll take a look.
