[ovs-dev] [PATCH net-next v3] openvswitch: Make 100 percents packets sampled when sampling rate is 1.

When sampling rate is 1, the sampling probability is UINT32_MAX. The packet
should be sampled even the prandom32() generate the number of UINT32_MAX.
And none packet need be sampled when the probability is 0.
