I followed your way and can build kernal succ.

Seemed that important step is we need run boot.sh again.

I found after run this step, all errors changed to warning so build 

I think as rhel 7 has been out for some time, although only a few product 
switch to 7.0.
It will better to prepare one rhel 7.0 spec in it.

per your question, 
I did not understand.
Do you mean rhel 7.0 already provide ovs module?
I checked 7.0 yum repo from rhn, seemed no ovs found now.
Could you paste me some info here?

I haven't tried rhel6.spec at all.  Since RHEL-7 GA is still recent,
it would be close enough to fedora spec and I found it builds just fine.
Maybe we can create a rhel7 spec to be more clear about this.

Just out of curiosity, could you explain why you are not using the
openvswitch module provided by the rhel-7 kernel package?
