[ovs-dev] [PATCH] dpif-netdev: compatible function type

The dpif_provder flow_dump_create function signature was changed, but
the netdev dpif was not updated along with it.  This generated a build
error with the following warnings:

libtool: compile:  gcc -std=gnu99 -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I ./include -I ./include -I ./lib -I ./lib -Wstrict-prototypes -Wall -Wextra -Wno-sign-compare -Wpointer-arith -Wformat -Wformat-security -Wswitch-enum -Wunused-parameter -Wbad-function-cast -Wcast-align -Wstrict-prototypes -Wold-style-definition -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-field-initializers -fno-strict-aliasing -Wshadow -Wno-null-pointer-arithmetic -Werror -Werror -g -O2 -MT lib/dpif-netdev.lo -MD -MP -MF lib/.deps/dpif-netdev.Tpo -c lib/dpif-netdev.c -o lib/dpif-netdev.o
