OK. I'm glad it works with OVS 1.4.0. We are planning to keep OVS
scripts in sync with upstream XenServer from now on (mostly, by not
installing any scripts over the upstream XenServer versions), so with
luck the problem will not recur.
I imagine that there are few users of SR-IOV who install OVS on top of
it, since OVS and SR-IOV don't really work together anyhow, so I doubt
it's worth backporting. Still, if you want to do so, we'll look over
the patches and apply them if they appear safe.
