I did a "git pull" on your repo, then "git send-email" generated the

Is that the preferred way to do it?  It seems a little ad hoc.  Another
way would be to add a target to the OVS build tree, so that the script
could just become something like

        ./boot.sh && ./configure && make -j$(nproc) tests/oss-fuzz/fuzzer

or whatever.

But, maybe this ad hoc build method is conventional for oss-fuzz?  I'm
not familiar with their usual processes.

Well, either they have to have #include <config.h> or we need to
blacklist these files, one or the other.  The former is probably
harmless and possibly helpful.

I'd add a new tests/oss-fuzz/automake.mk and then include that in
