[ovs-dev] Time to remove the OVS subtree from OVN repo

Now that OVN is compiled with OVS sources from external sources, I think we
can go ahead and delete the ovs subtree [1],

We can delete this in 2 ways
 (1) Just delete the ovs subfolder using "git rm -rf ovs"
 (2)  Using git filter-branch

(2) deletes the history of ovs subfolder and rewrites the commit history.

Any comments on which way to use ?

If (1) is preferred, then I will push it to my personal repo for review as
it would result in a very big patch.
