[ovs-dev] [PATCH 00/11] Get rid of ctl_fatal() calls in ovn-nbctl (part 2)

This is a continuation of an earlier series that aims to replace calls to
ctl_fatal() in command handlers in ovn-nbctl. The motivation is to handle errors
gracefully when running commands in daemon mode because as a long-lived process
we shouldn't terminate on errors that we can recover from.

After this series there are no more ctl_fatal() calls in ovn-nbctl that affect
the daemon mode. The only remaining function left to convert is the commands
parser in db-ctl-base module (ctl_parse_commands()), which I intend to deal with
separately. Either as a part of ovn-nbctl daemon series (already in review [1]),
or as a follow-up to it.
