[ovs-discuss] Using unix sockets for controller communication

In the thread "ARP Behavior in XenServer Host"
an issue similar to what I'm dealing with was discussed. While I get
my setup working using 'disable-in-band' option, that isn't the
optimal solution.

What I was really hoping to do was to use a unix socket for
communication with the controller, yet this has been disabled due to
the fear of remote exploits.

Would it be possible to add e.g. a whitelist of paths, or similar to
enable that feature?
