Indeed, that's what I meant by bootstrap the tree again
(./boot.sh).  The ./configure script creates a cache file
so that in the next time you run, it doesn't need to go
checking everything on the system again. 

However, in this case that patch changes the things checked
by the script but it doesn't trigger any refresh.  So you
need to do it by running ./boot.sh script.

The kernel module (the one you're building) is part of the
standard RHEL kernel.

$ rpm -qpl kernel-3.10.0-123.2.1.el7.x86_64.rpm | grep openvswitch
