[ovs-dev] [PATCH v2 2/2] windows, ovn-nbctl: Add service_start call inside the server loop

Currently all ovn-nbctl (daemon) tests are failing due to the missing
call to `service_start` which is required on Windows.

Windows lacks fork so we need to pass all arguments, so we can spawn a new
process and interpret it properly when calling `service_start`.
