I don't know what you effect you want from this change.

If you want to keep checkpatch from complaining for long lines in kernel
code, then this is not the right way, because checkpatch ignores the
datapath/ directory that contains kernel code.

If you want to update OVS coding style to allow longer lines in OVS's
own code, then the patch should update
in a few different places, and we should probably discuss it more
extensively than just a bare ack.
