Looks ok to me.  Will this be accessible via ovs-vsctl?

If so, hsflowd will be able to tell ovs to use the same agent-address
as the one it already settled on.  Instead of just specifying the
device and hoping it works out:
https://github.com/sflow/host-sflow/blob/v2.0.15/src/Linux/mod_ovs.c#L258

So that's another use-case for this new option.
