[ovs-dev] [PATCH ovn] northd: Amend RBAC rules for Port_Binding table

When `ovn-controller` claims a virtual lport it will update the
Port_Binding table with which chassis currently has claimed the
port as well as recording information about the virtual parent
lport [0].

The current RBAC rules does not allow for the latter which makes
this operation fail.
