[ovs-discuss] An issue has to fix in all OVS releases

We do our best to backport fixes to earlier release branches when they
are either important or easy to backport.  The fact that this fix wasn't
backported demonstrates that it didn't fall into one of those
categories, or that we overlooked it.  If you need the fix on an earlier
version, you are free to backport it and, if you like, post the patch
(clearly labeled as e.g. "PATCH branch-1.3") to ovs-dev.

This is also the first I've heard that this patch had anything to do
with SR-IOV support.  We only applied it earlier to keep in sync with
upstream XenServer.
