[ovs-dev] [PATCH ovn branch-20.06 v2 2/2] ovn-ctl: Handle cluster db upgrades for run_(nb/sb)_ovsdb

From: Numan Siddique <numans at ovn.org>

when ovn-ctl run_(nb_sb)_ovsdb is called, the ovsdb-server is started without
passing --detach and --monoitor and the process is exec'd.

For cluster mode, upgrade_cluster is never called and hence the dbs are not upraded
to new schema. CMS has to handle the db upgrade separately.

This patch handles the db upgrade by starting ovsdb-server in background and then
waits on ovsdb-server to complete.

(cherry picked from commit 67e2f386cc838d0b0f9b4b5da7fe611e1113b70c)
(adapted to not use `start_wrapped_daemon` which does not exist in branch-20.06)
