This reverts commit 2bdd1f3d96a86bea6bdb8788f23ec7dd99b289e3.

Rather than attempting to force the removal of the ip_gre/gre
kernel modules, which often fails because they're in use, we
will add a patch that does not cause the openvswitch kernel
module to fail to load when the ip_gre/gre protocol entry
points are already claimed.
