Thanks for your notes. Well because I'm much comfortable with Github
features if it's okay I continue to push further changes in Github.

The reason I add this cmdline arg is creating dedicated remotes for each
ovsdb server seems only available with cmdline. For example, I want each
ovsdb server to listen on their host IP address and if I set it via
database it will apply on all DBs and so when I set to listen on x.x.x.x
just one host can listen on and others raise an error that they can't.
So I added this arg to help setting probe interval for those connections
that initialized with cmdline args and not stored in DB.

I'll add a unit test for it. For the documentation is it enough to add it
to `ovsdb-server --help` output or for example should I add it to the NEWS
file or...?
