    openvswitch: fix flow command message size

    When user-space sets the OVS_UFID_F_OMIT_* flags, and the relevant
    flow has no UFID, we can exceed the computed size, as
    ovs_nla_put_identifier() will always dump an OVS_FLOW_ATTR_KEY
    Take the above in account when computing the flow command message

    Fixes: 74ed7ab9264c ("openvswitch: Add support for unique flow IDs.")
