[ovs-dev] [PATCH 3/3] rhel: Add variables for OVN and VTEP db locations.

Most real deployments will need to customize the database locations
for ovn-controller and ovn-controller-vtep.  Instead of making them
override the entire command used to start the daemons, provide and
document some environment variables that can be overridden in a custom
config file.
