[ovs-discuss] Compatibility with Linux Kernels

When building OVS 1.7.1 on Ubuntu 12.10 (Kernel 3.5.0-19), I got the
following error during 'make':

openvswitch-1.7.1/datapath/linux/datapath.c:42:24: fatal error: asm/system.h:
No such file or directory

This got me thinking: is 3.5.0-19 even supported? According to the latest
README of OVS (https://github.com/homework/openvswitch/blob/master/README),
it is. Here is an excerpt:

*The included Linux kernel module supports Linux 2.6.18 and up*

So is it? Thanks.
