If I follow the cookbook example and then join the veth interface to it I can't see the container but get a response from pings; if I assign an IP to the bridge I can connect to the hardware node that OVS is running on.

OpenVZ uses a patched version of the Linux kernel and OVS does not
support these modifications, which is why it panics.
